9781604863345: Capital and Its Discontents: Conversations with Radical Thinkers in a Time of Tumult (Spectre)

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.

About the Author:

Sasha Lilley is a writer, broadcaster, and host of Against the Grain on KPFA Radio, the flagship station of the Pacifica Network. She is the series editor of Spectre, the PM Press political economy imprint. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Review:

"These conversations illuminate the current world situation in ways that are very useful for those hoping to orient themselves and find a way forward to effective individual and collective action. Highly recommended."  Kim Stanley Robinson, author, The Years of Rice and Salt

"This is an extremely important book. It is the most detailed, comprehensive, and best study yet published on the most recent capitalist crisis and its discontents."  Andrej Grubacic, coauthor, Wobblies and Zapatistas

"In this fine set of interviews, an A-list of radical political economists demonstrate why their skills are indispensable to understanding today’s multiple economic and ecological crises."  Raj Patel, author, Stuffed and Starved

"This collection of interviews introduces the reader to much of the best thinking about social issues on the U.S. left today."  Barbara Epstein, author, History of Consciousness

"Sasha Lilley’s Capital and Its Discontents is a superb introduction to some of the best traditions, given to us through some of the sharpest thinkers of the Global North." Vijay Prashad, author, The Darker Nations: A People’s History of the Third World

"The value of this book lies in its accessibility. . . . Key points are presented quickly, clearly and in a language that is comprehensible. [This] is the perfect book for liberals and leftists who want to move beyond superficial criticism of bad policies and greedy corporate executives and toward a structural critique of capitalism and imperialism." Indypendent (April 6, 2011)



"As a whole the book offers incredibly thought-provoking interviews, made more so by Lilley's excellent questioning, and demonstrates her deep and insightful knowledge of the issues and the thinkers with whom she engages." —www.MarxAndPhilosophy.org.uk

"This cool-headed but urgent volume--timely but sophisticated and wide-ranging enough to remain a longtime reference--will serve as an excellent introduction for readers lacking familiarity with discourse in political economy, while providing important elaboration on central themes for those with more background." Publishers Weekly - Starred review (June 22, 2011)

Descripción PM Press. PAPERBACK. Estado de conservación: New. 160486334X Capitalism is stumbling, empire is faltering, and the planet is thawing. Yet many people are still grasping to understand these multiple crises and to find a way forward to a just future. Into the breach come the essential insights of Capital and Its Discontents, which cut through the gristle to get to the heart of the matter about the nature of capitalism and imperialism, capitalism?s vulnerabilities at this conjuncture?and what can we do to hasten its demise. 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. The book challenges conventional wisdom on the Left about the nature of globalization, neoliberalism and imperialism, as well as the agrarian question in the Global South. It probes deeply into 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 labor. The Left luminaries in Capital and Its Discontents look at potential avenues out of the mess?as well as wrong turns and needless detours?drawing lessons from the history of post-colonial 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 humanist tradition. At a moment when capitalism as a system is more reviled than ever, here is an indispensable toolbox of ideas for action by some of the most brilliant thinkers of our times.
