The Writing on the Wall: On the Decomposition of Capitalism and its Critics

by Anselm Jappe - £12.99  John Hunt Publishing (Zero Books) (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781785355813 | ISBN 10: 1785355813

The 2008 global financial crisis has led to the re-emergence in public discourse of the idea that capitalism could end. For many, it was proof of the notion that capitalist civilisation has an endemic tendency towards crisis that will ultimately bring about its demise. Must we assume, however, that such an eventuality would inevitably result in the liberation of humanity, as many orthodox Marxists claim?
 
Through a collection of specially revised essays, first published in France between 2007 and 2010, Anselm Jappe draws on the radical new perspective of “the critique of value” as a critical tool with which to understand today’s world and to re-examine the question of human emancipation.
 
The Writing on the Wall offers a powerful new analysis of the decomposition of capitalism and its critics.
