Product Description

Product Description

In Anti-Capitalism, activist and scholar Ezequiel Adamovsky tells the story of the long-standing effort to build a better world, one without an abusive system at its heart. Backed up by arresting, lucid images from the radical artist group United Illustrators, Adamovsky details the struggle against rising corporate power, as that struggle unfolds in the halls of academia, in the pages of radical newspapers, and in the jungles and the streets. From Marx through the Battle of Seattle and beyond, Adamovsky traces the beliefs and politics of the major figures in the anticapitalist tradition and explores modern experiments in building different ways of living, in the process providing an indispensible primer for anyone interested in finding alternatives to the so-called "best system we have"—and anyone interested in joining the fight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, Concise Introduction 13 Dec. 2014
By Jersey Flight - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I would like to thank Mr. Adamovsky for writing this book. This is an excellent introduction to the theory of capitalism. It is basically divided into two parts. The first part lays out the principles of capitalism and the second part lays out the history of anti-capitalist movements.

In a very short space this book educates the reader on the problems of capitalism. If I were to give someone an introduction; I think this is the best place to start. After this book, as a general overview, the student should read the Communist Manifesto.

The assumption that a book against capitalism needs to be long and detailed is false. One can gain just as much from reading this book as they can from reading larger works on the subject.

I hope more people will leave feedback for this excellent book. The more people read it the more aware society will be.
