Capitalism research has been a constant research subject of critical thought in the world. Marxists and left activists are the irreplaceable actors for that critique. Generally Marx’s Capital has been the basis of all debates and controversies. And we cannot ignore those several arguments holding the view that Marx’s capital, capitalism and class analysis have proved invalid throughout the contemporary history. Another view holds that capitalism and capitalist society is faced by a disastrous regress to barbarism. As capital and capitalism develops forward these debates will never end, but revival and creative progress of Marxist tenets on the issue based on the recent facts of the era has long called Marxists on this task. Due to several historical reasons and internal problems several basic tenets of Marxist capitalism and capital analysis was damaged remarkably. We have chosen this book the Chinese academy who have paid a valuable effort to revive those tenets together with a comprehensive analysis on contemporary developments. Our title sounds too radical, we agree that capitalism has not entered into a brand new stage recently; though it has gained many new features with corporate capital and internationalization. As capitalism and capital was developed in the womb of the old society, socialism and social capital is dialectically developed in capitalism every hour and every day; this is the realistic basis of all the practice to deepen and accelerate this process. This is another way of saying socialism opposes private capitalist property and capitalism but is inherently combined and related with them in several patterns dialectically in the process of opposition.
