Summary

"Geoff Mann is a new breed of monkey-wrencher. He knows that contemporary capitalism has a perverse habit of dismantling itself and gives us a toolkit to build a new, more socially just edifice."--Andy Merrifield, Magical Marxism "Insightful and incisive, thoughtful and thorough, filled with new avenues for thinking about resistence. Pass this one by at your own peril."--Matt Hern, Common Ground in a Liquid City To imagine how we might change capitalism, we first need to understand it. To succeed in actually changingit, we need to be able to explain how it works and convince others that change is both possible and necessary. Disassembly Requiredis an attempt to meet those challenges, and to offer clear, accessible alternatives to the status quo of everyday capitalism. Originally crafted as a comprehensive overview for younger readers, Geoff Mann's explanation of the fundamental features of contemporary capitalism is illustrated with real-world examples?an ideal introduction for anyone wanting to learn more about what capitalism is and where it falls short. What emerges is an anti-capitalist critique that fully understands the complex, dynamic, robust organizational machine of modern economic life, digging deep into the details of capitalist institutions and the relations that justify them to unearth the politically indefensible and ecologically unsustainable premises that underlie them. Geoff Mannteaches political economy and economic geography at Simon Fraser University, where he directs the Centre for Global Political Economy. He is the author of Our Daily Bread: Wages, Workers and the Political Economy of the American West(2007) and a frequent contributor to Historical Materialismand New Left Review.
