New Left Project have released a new ebook, featuring a discussion between distinguished economist Robin Hahnel and sociologist and leading radical thinker Erik Olin Wright. The discussion revolves around the crucial but oft-neglected question of what kind of society should we be fighting for, post-capitalism, and has gained high praise from the likes of Noam Chomsky, Gar Alperovitz and Stuart White.

Hahnel favours a bottom-up approach of participatory economics, whilst Wright advocates for a 'real utopian socialism’. Alternatives to Capitalism puts these practical proposals through their paces in an in-depth, frank and extremely instructive debate about the central question of our time. 

The book, Alternatives to Capitalism: Proposals for a Democratic Economy, is now available for free download for kindle from the New Left Project website.

To celebrate the launch of the book, the New Left Project will host a live discussion between Robin and Erik at SOAS, London on Wednesday 3rd December. For further information see here.

Erik Olin Wright's new book, Understanding Class, which develops on 30 years of research into class in Capitalist society, will be published by Verso in Summer 2015. To see Erik's other books from Verso, see here.
