Capitalism is a catastrophe for humanity.
It encloses us in a dynamic of destruction and death.
Is there any way that we can break that dynamic?
John’s lecture will be based in his recently published book “Crack Capitalism” published by Pluto Press and whish is already being translated into 9 languages. John is an international renowned expert on autonomist Marxist theory and the author amongst others of: Zapatista! Rethinking Revolution in Mexico (1998), Open Marxism: Emancipating Marx (1995), and Change the world without taking power (2002), all of which have significantly influenced thinking around social movements particularly in Latin America.
This is part of a Leverhulme Lecture series by prof John Holloway which will continue in November 2011. For more information about Prof Holloway’s visit see here or contact email@example.com
