Get Capitalism By Nancy Fraser
In this important new book, Nancy Fraser and Rachel Geagee have given a new look to the great questions surrounding the strange social form known as "capitalism," which has raised many of our common assumptions about what capitalism is and how to criticize it. They explain how various capitalist systems have, throughout history, adopted a series of institutional interrelationships between the economy, the political system, production, social reproduction, human and inhuman nature, with the border between these areas periodically being reset in response to crises and unrest.
They are thinking about how these "border conflicts" are a key to understanding the contradictions of capitalism and the multiple forms of conflict it engenders. What stands out is the renewed crisis of criticism of capitalism that puts our present situation in a broader perspective, together with sharp diagnoses of the recent emergence of the right-wing population and what is required of a viable leftist alternative.
This new book will be composed by two prominent theoreticians who are very important to anyone interested in the nature and future of capitalism and today's major progressive politics.
