You wont find this in Wall Street Journal 14 Dec 2002
By Charles M. Nobles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This anthology is provocative and guaranteed to create debate and discourse where ever two readers gather. It focuses on the writings and interviews of many proponents of the new anti-market left that has been around for awhile but gained increased visibility after the World Trade Organization meeting in Seattle in 1999. Interestingly, increased numbers of centrists and conservatives are questioning the legitimacy of market driven societies that are destroying their investments and jobs. Serious questions about the role of the market driven economy are no longer the province of the left.
The writers of this book discuss such topics as politics, culture, gender, and alternative economic systems in a non-doctrinaire manner that will give the reader an up-to-date discourse on globalization, war, and economic decline.
This is not something you will read in The Wall Street Journal.

Crucial Reading 3 Sep 2005
By R. Lundy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have to say that this book really took me by surprise. It's a first class introduction to its subject matter, in terms of how it maps the intellectual currents that inform post-Seattle anti-market politics today. Its accessible, moves quickly, and the interviews with Thomas Frank, Slavoj Zizek and Negri are a total hoot to see gathered together in the same bookspace.

What is especially interesting is how many of the contributors to the book invoke the continuing importance of first and second generation Frankfurt School theory to the analysis of contemporary capitalism. While I wouldn't necessarily have thought this to be true, there's clearly some merit to this argument. Worth considering further.

Recent Artifact 29 April 2007
By Douglas Doepke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It's rather late to be commenting on this well-intentioned 2002 anthology. However, researchers into post-soviet, anti-capitalist thinking may find the publication helpful. On one hand, there's really little here in the way of lasting political or theoretical value. On the other, the 300 pages do provide the reader with a good idea of just how dispersed and inchoate most anti-capitalist thinking is in the wake of the soviet demise. The shadow of Marx still looms large over the rebellious landscape suggesting that some 21st century reckoning amounts to a major order of business. However, don't look for anything on Iraq or the brutal resurgence of Western imperialism. Were the book updated, I suspect the contents would be meatier. All in all, a minor book on a major subject.
