"Lucid and indispensable guides to the history and practice of American Empire."
-Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine
"They have few rivals and no betters in analyzing the relations between politics and economics, between globalization and American power, between theory and quotidian reality, and between crisis and political possibility."
-Doug Henwood, editor and publisher, Left Business Observor
Panitch and Gindin offer a fresh, monumental rethinking of the development of global capitalism while proposing a paradigm shift and a corresponding transformation in the way we analyze this new reality. Leo Panitch is Canada Research Chair in Comparative Political Economy in the Department of Political Science at York University. Sam Gindin is Packer Visiting Chair in Social Justice at York University
"Combining the ferocity of investigative reporters, sophisticated skills in interpreting the historical archive, and a profound grasp of theory, Panitch and Gindin provide an astonishingly illuminating account of the making of global capitalism through the organization of a global financial system under US hegemony since World War II."
-David Harvey, CUNY Graduate Center, and author of A Companion to Marx's Capital
Hosted by Sasha Lilley, a writer, journalist, and radio broadcaster whose work focuses on social movements, economics, and intellectual history. The editor of Capital and Its Discontents: Conversations with Radical Thinkers in a Time of Tumult, she is also a contributor to the Turbulence Collective's What Would it Mean to Win?, and co-founder and host of Against the Grain, a Pacifica Radio program.
