A rallying cry for a socialist politics that can save our world

Capitalism has come, in the twenty-first century, to dominate nearly every sphere of life, from ecology and race to the organization of care and the practice of politics. In this tightly argued but urgent volume, leading Marxist feminist theorist Nancy Fraser charts the voracious appetite of capital, tracking it from crisis point to crisis point, from ecological devastation to the collapse of democracy, and from the devaluing of care work to racial injustice. These crisis points all come to head in the “perfect storm” of Covid-19, which Fraser argues can help us envision the kind of resistance we must build to stop capital from cannibalizing our whole world. What we need, she argues, is a broad and wide-ranging socialist movement that can recognise capital’s appetite—and starve it to death.
