Capital and its Discontents

Conversations with Radical Thinkers in a Time of Tumult

Author(s): LILLEY, Sasha
ISBN13/Barcode: 9780850366778
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Through a series of incisive conversations with some of the most eminent thinkers and political economists on the Left —including David Harvey, Ellen Meiksins Wood, Mike Davis, Leo Panitch, Tariq Ali, and Noam Chomsky— Capital and Its Discontents illuminates the dynamic contradictions undergirding capitalism and the potential for its dethroning.

This book challenges conventional wisdom on the Left about the nature of globalization, neo-liberalism and imperialism, as well as the agrarian question in the Global South. It probes the roots of the global economic meltdown, the role of debt and privatization in dampening social revolt and considers capitalism’s dynamic ability to find ever new sources of accumulation—whether through imperial or ecological plunder or the commodification of previously unpaid female labour.
