Abstract:

"In his new book, Gar Alperovitz argues that the first decade of the twenty-first century - challenged by growing economic inequality, the devaluing of civil liberties, and a government unresponsive to the people - is already producing conditions that will force the United States to undergo historic changes." "There have been five major political realignments in American history, from before the Progressive Era to beyond the New Deal. All have occurred in the face of the argument that major change was impossible. America Beyond Capitalism shows that increasing numbers of citizens are also quietly beginning to take meaningful local and national action that can ultimately give explosive force to a new approach."--BOOK JACKET.
