Capitalism in the Web of Life: Ecology and the Accumulation of Capital

by Jason W. Moore - £19.99  Verso Books (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781781689028 | ISBN 10: 1781689024

The relationship between capital and ecology in the longue durée.
 
Finance. Climate. Food. Work. How are the crises of the twenty-first century connected? In Capitalism in the Web of Life, Jason W. Moore argues that the sources of today’s global turbulence have a common cause: capitalism as a way of organizing nature, including human nature. Drawing on environmentalist, feminist, and Marxist thought, Moore offers a groundbreaking new synthesis: capitalism as a “world-ecology” of wealth, power, and nature. Capitalism’s greatest strength — and the source of its problems — is its capacity to create Cheap Natures: labor, food, energy, and raw materials. That capacity is now in question.
 
Rethinking capitalism through the pulsing and renewing dialectic of humanity-in-nature, Moore takes readers on a journey from the rise of capitalism to the modern mosaic of crisis. Capitalism in the Web of Life shows how the critique of capitalism in-nature — rather than capitalism and nature — is key to understanding our predicament, and to pursuing the politics of liberation in the century ahead.
