(1 Ratings)
Price: $1.06
The book Post-Fordism and its discontents is rethinking the recent transformations of global capitalism in the light of its manifold internal fractures and contradictions. It addresses complex connections between culture and economy in order to scrutinise what underpins the logic of late capitalism. This volume is not a post-Fordist reader, but offers a confrontation on major controversies of post-Fordist theory, debated by researchers and scholars from a variety of theoretical contexts, ranging from Marxist, post-Marxist to post-Fordist. They present their takes on rethinking a return to a fundamental theoretical rupture: to Karl Marx's critique of political economy. The volume includes diverse contributions by Sergio Bologna, Jacques Rancière, Katja Diefenbach, Sandro Mezzadra, Rastko Močnik and others.

    Profound changes in the global economy, the labour process, class composition, political organisation and forms of cultural practice over the last 40 years have given rise to numerous radical theories seeking to comprehend the novelty of our epoch. Between economism and politicism, resignation and decisionism, apocalypse and revelation: contemporary critical thought oscillates between new and old contradictions of the radical critique of the 'existing state of affairs'. This important collection, containing critical essays by some of Europe's most dynamic radical theorists and political activists, puts Marx's critique of political economy back in the centre of debates about the concept and reality of post-Fordism. Rather than a fixed theory or concept, the dialogue of these essays allows post-Fordism to come forward as a productive description of a contradictory field of conflicts, interests and political experiences. The result is a stimulating tapestry of critical... More > perspectives that remind us that the defining coordinates of the present can only be comprehended in the deeper historical perspective of transformations of the capitalist mode of production and the forms of resistance and struggle to which it incessantly gives rise. Peter D. Thomas, author of The Gramscian Moment. Philosophy, Hegemony and Marxism and editor of Historical Materialism: research in critical Marxist theory.< Less
