similar to Dobb's work; Meek was Dobb's teacher. i can't really recall the exact differences between the two, except that Meek's is more of an overall history. both misrepresent the core of Marx's critical social theory but both provide good introductions to Smith and Ricardo, which most of the sexy value-form readings assume as prior knowledge. from my notes, i also have down that Meek misreads abstract labor as being abstract by virtue of human labor becoming ever more interchangeable thanks ...more

Great pre-sraffian analysis of competing labor theories of value. The author is a marxist, so of course he comes down on one side (the right side), but he certainly gives Smith and Ricardo a more robust defense than they're usually granted.
