Why is our society so unequal? Why, despite their small numbers, do the wealthy dominate policy and politics, even in democratic countries? Why is it so difficult for working people to organise around common interests, and how do we begin building a more equal and democratic society? Award-winning sociologist Vivek Chibber answers these questions.
Chibber shows that while political organising might be hard, political education doesn’t have to be. Combining elements of Marxism and modern social science with clear language, Chibber elucidates the core dynamics of our economy and politics. His analysis provides an indispensable map of how modern capitalism works and lays out a plan for how socialists can overcome the odds and build a democratic and egalitarian future.
