Review quote

In recent decades it has become easier to imagine the end of the world than to imagine even modest changes in the mode of production. The voices in this inspiring volume, of academics and activists engaged in a rich variety of struggles against the primacy of the market, point to the possibility of a world that is not entirely for sale. With stirring examples of determination to contest neoliberal forces that have brought about significant improvements in people's lives, this collection is a must-read book for those who continue to hope for social change in the global economy. -- Verity Burgmann, Monash Universityshow more
