Format: Paperback
From the streets of Cairo and Athens to Zuccotti Park, the poor and oppressed are rising up against the tyranny of the capitalist system. Given this popular groundswell of anti-capitalist protest around the world, this book is more important than ever. With brilliant essays by such important left libertarian thinkers as Chris Spannos, Ian McKay, Robin Hahnel, Uri Gordon, Marie Trigona, and Michael Albert, among others, this timely anthology presents exciting visions of what a decentralized, egalitarian, participatory, self-managed, associated, and federated anarchist communist economy would look like. From cooperatives and communes to local currencies and workers' councils, this book offers positive, revolutionary alternatives to capitalism and the nation-state. If normally you don't read books on economics because they're usually dry and boring, I can assure you that this book is very easy to understand, fun to read, and not at all tedious. Indeed it should be required reading for today's generation of activists struggling to create a good, rational, ecological society based on economic, racial, and gender equality. I strongly recommend it.

Anarchism is not a dead philosophy, and the essays in this book prove that. I am not anti-capitalist, but this book offers radical views that made me realize there is some much-needed change that needs to happen.

I reccommend this productto every sincere anarchist, or socialist who feel libertarian. It shows us great insights on how to analyze the capitalist system, resist it, and generate proposals for a new order based on mutual aid and the abolition of authority. Definitivly a must have.

You would think that anarchism and economics would not mix well together. That it would be like oil and water. This collection corrects that assumption, that anarchism and economics do mix. Rarely will you find a collection like this, most publishers rarely publish works on anarchism.

With the current economic climate, with rising profits and stagnant unemployment and low wages. Something will happen to change the system, the question becomes what will happen and what will it look like.

In this collection we get a look at what the possibility could look like. The book is split into six sections, each section taking on a different part of how the system is not working; and how it could work better.

Only a few chapters feel out of place in the book.

Long live the revolution.

This book brings forth common sense ideas and theories based on historically proven fact showing anarchy to be a viable and,yes, necessary substitute for our current capitalist system.
