Capitalism, What Is It And How Can We Destroy It? provides an accessible introduction to capitalism and explores how we might bring about its ending:

What is capitalism? An economic system built on private property, markets, exploitation and profit, enforced by state violence. But also, digging deeper, a culture of fear and passivity, in which we learn to see the natural world, other people, and even ourselves, as objects to be owned and managed, bought and sold.

The first part of this book gives an introduction to capitalist economics in accessible, non-specialist language. It covers: the basics of economic systems; financial markets; the global economy and shifting world power; the roles of the state; crisis. The second part delves into how capitalism shapes our values and desires. Finally, it turns to resistance and rebellion. So how can we destroy this poisonous system, and start to create new worlds of freedom?
