The seven volumes will comprise the definitive scholarly edition of the works of Michal Kalecki, one of the most distinguished of twentieth-century economists and one of the trio who arrived at the conclusions promulgated by Keynes around the same time as - and in Kalecki's case, arguablyearlier than - Keynes himself. Nearly half the material to appear in the seven volumes has never been previously published in English and includes revisions and additions made in the light of recent research, including information about the relationship of Kalecki's ideas to the ideas of contemporary economic theory. This volume deals with the capitalist economy and contains Kalecki's studies on the theory of income distribution in oligopolistic capitalism and on its economic dynamics. Each part of the book consists of essays devoted to a similar topic and individual papers in each part are arranged in chronological order. The editorial comments and annexes at the end of the volume, besides giving valuable information on the background to the main texts, include illuminatingexchanges of correspondence between Kalecki and Keynes, Joan Robinson, and others.
Jerzy Osiatynski is an Associate Professor of Economics, the Institute of History of Science, Education, and Technology of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw.

Editorial Reviews

`The Collection can be undoubtedly helpful in reconstructing the Kaleckian version of the functioning of capitalist system which can be considered as alternative with respect to that of Keynes ... Kalecki's own evolution had been scarsely noticed and often misunderstood. The Collectiondeserves the credit to have covered this lack of knowledge.'Studi Economici
