Well, the number of volumes depends on language and edition. The
french paperback version is in three volumes, the German edition (with
a very bad translation) in one single volume (the book was originally
written in French, while "Late Capitalism" was written in German).
Besides, his 98-page booklet "An introduction to Marxist Economic

Pathfinder Press (http://www.pathfinderpress.com/d000/44.shtm); they
