Product Overview

In an era of profound economic and ecological crisis, this collection unravels the dynamic contradictions at the heart of capitalism and points possible ways forward to a liberatory future. Through a series of incisive conversations with some of the most eminent thinkers and political economists on the Left--including Noam Chomsky, Tariq Ali, David Harvey, Ellen Meiksins Wood, Mike Davis, and Doug Henwood--Sasha Lilley examines the roots of the global economic meltdown, neoliberalism in the Global South and North, struggles against empire past and present, the eternal pendulum swing of social revolt, and the potentialities of the radical tradition in a time of austerity.

From the Publisher
Editors Note Capitalism is stumbling, empire is faltering, and the planet is thawing. Yet many people are still grappling to understand these multiple crises and to find a way forward to a just future. Into the breach come the insights of Capital and Its Discontents, which cut through the gristle to get to the heart of capitalism and neoliberalism. Through a series of incisive conversations with some of the most eminent thinkers and political economists on the leftùincluding David Harvey, Ellen Meiksins Wood, Mike Davis, Leo Panitch, David McNally, Tariq Ali, Doug Henwood, Andrej Grubadia, and Noam ChomskyùSasha Lilley illuminates the dynamic contradictions undergirding capitalism. The left luminaries in Capital and Its Discontents look at potential avenues out of the messùas well as wrong turns and needless detoursùdrawing lessons from the inner workings of capitalism, the history of postcolonial states in the Global South, struggles against imperialism past and present, the eternal pendulum swing of radicalism, the corrosive legacy of postmodernism, and the potentialities of the radical tradition.
