Product Description

Based on the popular undergraduate lecture series: at the University of Arizona - conceived and delivered by two experts in the field of geopoliticsHighly distinguished authors: Marv Waterstone is Professor Emeritus and Noam Chomsky is Laureate Professor at the University of ArizonaPolitics 101: A must-read for anyone looking for a clear, informative introduction to the political ideas that underpin our world todayStrong Chomsky sales record: Hegemony or Survival (over 130,000 copies), How the World Works (over 50,000 copies) and On Anarchism (100,000 copies)

An essential primer on capitalism, politics and how the world works, based on the hugely popular undergraduate lecture series 'What is Politics?'

Is there an alternative to capitalism? In this landmark text Chomsky and Waterstone chart a critical map for a more just and sustainable society.

'Covid-19 has revealed glaring failures and monstrous brutalities in the current capitalist system. It represents both a crisis and an opportunity. Everything depends on the actions that people take into their own hands.'

How does politics shape our world, our lives and our perceptions? How much of 'common sense' is actually driven by the ruling classes' needs and interests? And how are we to challenge the capitalist structures that now threaten all life on the planet?

Consequences of Capitalism exposes the deep, often unseen connections between neoliberal 'common sense' and structural power. In making these linkages, we see how the current hegemony keeps social justice movements divided and marginalized. And, most importantly, we see how we can fight to overcome these divisions.
