The Ethnological Notebooks of Karl Marx Marxist, XXXIV, 3, July-September Archana Prasad Karl Marx Some Methodological Reflections The development of capitalism in different parts of the world had, to a large extent, multiple trajectories, because it encountered concrete situations with pre-existing institutions and social relations that shaped the system. In other words the diverse interactions between capital and pre-capitalist social formations generated manifestations of the domination of capital and patterns of surplus extraction. Carriers of capital got into both conflict and negotiation with pre-capitalist power structures.

The essay is divided into three sections.
