Zombie Capitalism

New from Bookmarks Publications

Zombie Capitalism: Global crisis and the relevance of Marx, by Chris Harman

A major new study of capitalism from Marx to the 21st century

Praise for Zombie Capitalism:

“A powerful, comprehensive and accessible critique of capitalism from one of the world’s pre-eminent Marxist economists. This book needs to be read far and wide. It is a clear, incisive warning of the massive dangers posed by a ‘runaway system’ and the threat it poses for the future of humanity.” Graham Turner, author of Credit Crunch: Housing Bubbles, Globalisation and the Worldwide Economic Crisis 

“Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the present crisis and its place in the history of capitalism and an important contribution to Marxist political economy” Alex Callinicos, Professor of European Studies, King’s College London
