In Anti-Capitalism, activist and scholar Ezequiel Adamovsky tells the story of the long-standing effort to build a better world, one without an abusive system at its heart. Backed up by arresting, lucid images from the radical artist group United Illustrators, Adamovsky details the struggle against rising corporate power, as that struggle unfolds in the halls of academia, in the pages of radical newspapers, and in the jungles and the streets. From Marx through the Battle of Seattle and beyond, Adamovsky traces the beliefs and politics of the major figures in the anticapitalist tradition and explores modern experiments in building different ways of living, in the process providing an indispensible primer for anyone interested in finding alternatives to the so-called "best system we have"—and anyone interested in joining the fight.

An illustrated primer on capitalism: why it's destructive, who resists it, and how one can join the fight against it.

This work provides a basic illustrated primer of the concepts, debates, and traditions that have defined (and redefined) anti-capitalist thought and action from the early socialists to the present day. The author incorporates discussions of basic conceptual issues (class society, hegemony of the dominant class, etc.), debates between anti-capitalists, and the spectrum of anti-capitalist movements (including, e.g., anarchism, socialism, Marxism-Leninism, socialist feminism, peasant movements, national liberation movements, radical ecology, and the Zapatistas). The style of presentation is reminiscent of the long-running "For Beginners" illustrated series. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
