Product Overview

How do we create a different world? Crack captialism: create cracks, moments or spaces of rebellion in which we assert a different type of doing. That is what we are doing already, every day, everywhere.

John Holloway's acclaimed book, Change the World Without Taking Power, sparked a world-wide debate about the most effective methods of going beyond capitalism. Now Holloway takes the debate further, arguing that hope lies in the fact that capitalism is already badly cracked, full of ruptures in the logic of social cohesion. Can these cracks really break the system? Holloway suggests that the force of the crack lies in their common drive against capitalist labour and towards a different type of activity, doing what we consider necessary or desirable. The question of revolution is not how to destroy capitalism, but how to stop creating it and do something sensible instead.

Clearly presented in the form of 33 theses, Crack Capitalism will reignite the debate among radical scholars and activists seeking to break capitalism now.

`Holloway's Change the World Without Taking Power stands alongside Hardt and Negri's Empire as one of the two key texts of contemporary autonomist Marxism'. Alex Callinicos, Capital & Class

`These few pages are among the most powerful and moving in revolutionary thought...Simply magnificent!' Michael Lowy, Bajo el Volcan
