    DescriptionIn this new title in Verso's Pocket Communism series, Jodi Dean argues for the continued force of communism today. It should be our Pole star, the focus of our journey. With communism as our horizon, the field of possibilities for revolutionary theory and practice starts to change shape, and barriers to action fall away. Our combined strength replaces our separate weaknesses, our collective desire replaces individual drive, and mobilized wills replace passive indecision. When the illusion that capitalism is the only reality dissolves, anything is possible. She shows that the global anti-capitalist movement associated with Occupy Wall Street gets its bearings from the communist horizon as it expresses the intensity of collective desires to organize against the corporate and financial elite. Jodi Dean presents nothing less than a manifesto for a new politics and a new collectivity.

    Review quote
    Praise for Democracy and Other Neoliberal Fantasies "Jodi's sharp analysis of the impasses of the left is also a kind of requiem for much of the 2.0 bluster of the last decade." Mark Fisher, author of Capitalist Realism "Jodi Dean's new book provides what we have all been waiting for: the authentic theoretical analysis of how ideology functions in today's global capitalism. Her diagnosis of 'communicative capitalism' discloses how our 'really-existing democracies' curtail prospects of radical emancipatory politics. To anyone who continues to dwell in illusions about liberal democracy, one should simply say: 'Hey, didn't you read Democracy and Other Neoliberal Fantasies?'" Slavoj A iA ek
