dc.description.abstract <p><a href="http://booksandjournals.brillonline.com/content/books/9789004300293" target="_blank" title="Go to Online Edition">Go to Online Edition</a></p> <p>Edited by Daniel Krier, <em>Iowa State University</em> and Mark P. Worrell, <em>SUNY Cortland</em></p> <p><em>Capitalisms’ Future: Alienation, Emancipation and Critique</em> frames 21st century economic and social possibilities in a dialogue between two forms of critical social theory: Marx’s <em>critique of political economy</em> that analyzes capitalism and the <em>critique of political psychology</em> that analyzes authoritarianism. Contributions from social theorists in sociology, philosophy, and cultural studies are brought together to dissect and critique capitalist crises, left-liberalism, left-Thatcherism, resistance to risk-pooling, idealist philosophy, undemocratic social character, status wages and authoritarian spectacles. Throughout, Marx’s centrality to critical social theory is confirmed, both alone and in in powerful combination with Adorno, Durkheim, Dubois, Lacan, Veblen, Weber and others. This book outlines conjoined critiques of <em>commodity-fetishism</em> and <em>authority fetishism</em> as the emancipatory agenda of 21st century critical theory.</p>
