The Anti-Capitalism Reader: Imagining a Geography of Opposition

Akashic Books.

The collapse of Enron and WorldCom and the increasing evidence of corruption at the highest levels of corporate life has opened the door to a remarkable whirlwind of dialogue about the prevailing economic ideology of the post-Cold War era. While traditionally the province of the left, concerns about the legitimacy of market-driven societies are now being voiced by centrists and conservatives, who fear that their livelihoods and their investments are suddenly at the mercy of forces spinning out of control. The Anti-Capitalism Reader: Imagining a Geography of Opposition is a non-doctrinaire anthology of writings and interviews covering much of the intellectual geography of the new anti-market left that has become increasingly visible since anti-capitalist protests rocked the World Trade Organization's 1999 meeting in Seattle. In addition to the Reader's editor, Bad Subjects co-director Joel Schalit, the book features essays by BS editors Charlie Bertsch, John Brady, Joe Lockard, J.C. Myers, Annalee Newitz, and Megan Prelinger. Other contributors include Doug Henwood and Naomi Klein, together with interviews with Slavoj Zizek, Toni Negri, Thomas Frank, and Wendy Brown.
