Change the world without taking power by John Holloway( )

78 editions published between 2002 and 2019 in 4 languages and held by 2,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The wave of political demonstrations since Seattle have crystallised a new trend in left-wing politics. Modern protest movements are grounding their actions in both Marxism and Anarchism, fighting for radical social change in terms that have nothing to do with the taking of state power. This is in clear opposition to the traditional Marxist theory of revolution which centres on taking state power. In this book, John Holloway asks how we can reformulate our understanding of revolution as the struggle against power, not for power. After a century of failed attempts by revolutionary and reformist movements to bring about radical social change, the concept of revolution itself is in crisis. John Holloway opens up the theoretical debate, reposing some of the basic concepts of Marxism in a critical development of the subversive Marxist tradition represented by Adorno, Bloch and Lukacs, amongst others, and grounded in a rethinking of Marx's concept of 'fetishisation' -- how doing is transformed into being. -- Publisher description

Global capital, national state, and the politics of money by Werner Bonefeld( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between the state and money has changed radically since the breakdown of the Bretton Woods system, as a result of factors such as the floating of exchange rates, the deregulation of international money markets, the international debt crisis of the 1980s, the continued expansion of global debt and a growing dissociation between monetary and productive accumulation. In this context it is important to reconsider the politics of 'money' and the relationship between the national state and the global economy. The contributors argue that the practical importance of monetarism and neo-liberalism in general derived not from its coherence as a doctrine but from the change in the relationship between states and international money, following the breakdown of Bretton Woods. The essays in this book are all theoretical explorations of the new politics of world money and world debt

In, against, and beyond capitalism : the San Francisco lectures by John Holloway( )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An accessible venture into the thinking of John Holloway and his unique take on left radical theory In, Against, and Beyond Capitalism is based on three recent lectures delivered by John Holloway at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. The lectures focus on what anticapitalist revolution can mean today{u2014}after the historic failure of the idea that the conquest of state power was the key to radical change. The first lecture focuses on the meaning of "We," the second on the understanding of capital as a system of social cohesion that systematically frustrates our creative force, and the third on the proposal that we are the crisis of this system of cohesion. In addition, it includes an introductory preface by Andrej Grubacic, the Q & A after each lecture, and a bibliographic essay by the author

Wir sind die Krise des Kapitals … und stolz darauf : die San-Francisco-Vorträge by John Holloway( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wir sind die Krise des Kapitals ... basiert auf drei kürzlich gehaltenen Vorlesungen John Holloways am ›California Institute of Integral Studies‹ in San Francisco. Die Vorlesungen befassen sich mit den heutigen Möglichkeiten einer antikapitalistischen Revolution – nach der historischen Niederlage der Idee, der Schlüssel zum radikalen Wandel sei die Eroberung der Staatsmacht – und stellen eine brillante und mitreißende Einführung in die zentralen Themen in Holloways Werk dar.Das Leitmotiv der Vorlesungen – die Idee, dass "wir die Krise des Kapitals und stolz darauf sind" – läuft der Meinung vieler linker Denker*innen entgegen, wonach die Kapitalist*innen die Schuld an der Krise tragen oder die Krise schlichtweg ein Ausdruck des Systemversagens sei. Der einzige Weg, die Krise als mögliche Schwelle zu einer besseren Welt zu betrachten, besteht darin, das Scheitern des Kapitalismus als Ergebnis unserer kreativen Antriebskraft zu betrachten. Dies stellt eine theoretische Herausforderung dar. Die erste Vorlesung befasst sich also mit der Frage, wer ›wir‹ – im Sinne einer wirkmächtigen antikapitalistischen Kraft – eigentlich sind, die zweite mit dem Verständnis von Kapital als System der gesellschaftlichen Kohäsion, welches unsere Kreativität systematisch hemmt, und die dritte mit der These, dass ›wir‹ die Krise dieses Kohäsionssystems sind.
