It is easy to say what is wrong with capitalism. It is much more difficult to decide what therefore needs to be done. The biggst danger of a critique of capitalism is that it itself becomes reified.

This book examines the dangers of reified critiques of capitalism, and activism grounded in these critiques. It argues against the idea of history as an unfolding force. History is made, therefore it takes no site. History as the history of the victors of history must end Now.

This Volume represents a plurality (and, conflict) of stresses both at the level of analysing the crisis and of providing insights into diverse class strategies and their implications indicating the various political economic tendencies that constitute the crisis, its expansion and dissipation. The complementarity of various perspectives may be grasped only in retrospect. However, one can at least admit that they provide a glimpse into the richness of radical (especially, Marxist) critiques of political economy.
