Review:

"Take Back the Economy is the single most farsighted and practical work enlightening us on the path to a steady transition toward a genuine postcapitalist world. It is based on the presupposition that reorienting the economy means much more than the control of production--it means reinventing ourselves, our communities, and our world in profound ways. Out of this act of 'reframing' there emerges a novel understanding of work, enterprise, market, property, even finance. In this wonderful new work in the tradition of Gibson-Graham, students, activists, movements, and communities will find a toolkit for ethical and effective action any time, any place."--Arturo Escobar, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill



"Take Back the Economy is a valuable, engaged accessible and very clear addition to the Community Economics Collective oeuvre, and I hope it will be read widely and--more importantly--change the world."--Antipode

"Readable, practical, radical."--Sociology

"A most exquisitely conducted study into the not-for-profit or other side of organisations. It impressively shows that 'another world' is not only possible but already here."--Organization

"Beneficial for the use of individuals looking to alter their environmental or economic impact, students interested in administration or economics, or researchers and planners seeking alternatives for their communities."--Journal of Appalachian Studies
