Through a series of incisive conversations with some of the most eminent thinkers and political economists of the Left - including Noam Chomsky, David Harvey, Tariq Ali, Mike Davis, Leo Panitch and Ellen Meiksins Wood - Capital and Its Discontents illuminates the dynamic contradictions undermining capitalism and the subsequent potential for its dethroning. Groundbreaking and pertinent, Capital and Its Discontents is destined to become a classic within its field.

Review:

"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"

"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"

"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"

"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)

"Sasha Lilley has done us all a service by asking important and timely questions to such prominent thinkers particularly at a time when the world is confronted by even more economic inequality than ever before." --Grand Rapids Institute for Information Democracy, www.griid.org

"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)

"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
