Das Kapital soon to be launched in Japanese manga comic versionNovember 18th, 2008 - 4:15 pm ICT by ANI
London, November 18 (ANI): A manga comic version of Karl Marxs anti-capitalist book Das Kapital is all set to hit bookshelves in Japan.
The new book will present Marxs complex ideas in such comical format that they will be very easy to understand.
The comic version Das Kapital will be published on December 5 by Tokyo-based publishing company East Press.
The printing of this book is being seen as a sign of resurgence of leftwing literature in Japan, reports the Telegraph.
With the worlds second largest economy sinking into recession, according to media reports, a boom in Communist Party membership and a fashionable revival of anti-capitalist literature is being observed in Japan.
Manga has long been elevated to an art form in Japan, with its most high-profile fans including Prime Minister Taro Aso. (ANI)
