Editorial Reviews

Review

"McMurtry's vision is a panoramic, encyclopedic, and breathtakingly original one, imbued with both high reason and (com)passion. And for the few amongst us that can still savor such delicacies, it is heady elixir indeed." – Professor Rajani K. Kanth, Fellow, Harvard University


"Any entity that defines itself through exponential growth, be it a cancer tumor, the financial system or a runaway nuclear reaction, can only have one outcome: catastrophic failure with the sole chance of survival being the recognition of and response to the disorder. McMurtry provides both the diagnosis and antidote for this current state of our world." – Marcel Schlaf, Professor of Chemistry, University of Guelph


"McMurtry's profound analysis of the consequences of the unrestrained and relentless pursuit of profits should be a source of grave concern for everyone who cares about the survival and reproduction of the species. The publication of this new edition of his classic study will be welcomed with enthusiasm by every rational member of the world community." – James Fetzer, Distinguished McKnight University Professor Emeritus, University of Minnesota, Duluth


"This new edition confirms McMurtry's place as the foremost social philosopher of our time. The revised Cancer Stage of Capitalism lays bare, in even more detail than the original, the structural causes of global life-crises. McMurtry rigorously exposes the opposed paths between which humanity must choose: money-driven life-collapse or civil commons enabled life-development and enjoyment." – Jeff Noonan, Professor of Philosophy, University of Windsor


"The Cancer Stage of Capitalism confronts and resolves the ultimate issue of our time – world survival. The real economy is being consumed by the global corporate cancer system at every level. Survival depends on understanding McMurtry's classic analysis and acting on it." – Stephen Lendman, 2011 Mexico Investigative Journalist of the Year, author of How Wall Street Fleeces America


"McMurtry's classic study is more relevant than ever, as global finance capitalism multiplies itself at the expense of everything from vital public services to the ecosystems upon which all life depends. While southern Europe is being torn apart for the sake of debt servicing and the former Icelandic "tiger" recovers from a dramatic meltdown by imposing capital controls, this second edition brings much that is new, and a cure. Once again, McMurtry is ten years ahead of everyone else." – Giorgio Baruchello, Professor of Philosophy and Social Sciences, University of Akureyri, and Editor of Nordicum-Mediterraneum


"John McMurtry's work has woken us up, inspired us, and motivated us to connect our struggle for the life-ground and the civil commons – the real common good that strengthens the people across Kenya, the old and young, the men and the women, the eco-feminists and the dispossessed. In the life-ground and the civil commons, we know our spirit cannot be broken." – Wahu Kaara, Global Call to Action Against Poverty, All Africa Conference of Churches
