Description :  <b>We know that our world is undergoing seismic change—but how can we emerge from the crisis a fairer, more equal society?</b><br /><br />Over the past two centuries or so, capitalism has undergone profound changes—economic cycles that veer from boom to bust—from which it has always emerged transformed and strengthened. Surveying this turbulent history, Paul Mason’s <i>Postcapitalism</i> argues that we are on the brink of a change so big and so profound that this time capitalism itself, the immensely complex system within which entire societies function, will mutate into something wholly new.<br /><br /> At the heart of this change is information technology, a revolution that is driven by capitalism but, with its tendency to push the value of much of what we make toward zero, has the potential to destroy an economy based on markets, wages, and private ownership. Almost unnoticed, in the niches and hollows of the market system, swaths of economic life are beginning to move to a different rhythm. Vast numbers of people are changing how they behave and live, in ways contrary to the current system of state-backed corporate capitalism. And as the terrain changes, new paths open.<br /><br /> In this bold and prophetic book, Mason shows how, from the ashes of the crisis, we have the chance to create a more socially just and sustainable economy. Although the dangers ahead are profound, he argues that there is cause for hope. This is the first time in human history in which, equipped with an understanding of what is happening around us, we can predict and shape the future.

Description :  We are living through a period of dramatic political change – Brexit, the election of Trump, the rise of extreme right movements in Europe and elsewhere, the resurgence of nationalism and xenophobia and a concerted assault on the liberal values and ideals associated with cosmopolitanism and globalization. Suddenly we find ourselves in a world that few would have imagined possible just a few years ago, a world that seems to many to be a move backwards. How can we make sense of these dramatic developments and how should we respond to them? Are we witnessing a worldwide rejection of liberal democracy and its replacement by some kind of populist authoritarianism?<br /><br /> This timely volume brings together some of the world's greatest minds to analyse and seek to understand the forces behind this 'great regression'. Writers from across disciplines and countries, including Paul Mason, Pankaj Mishra, Slavoj Zizek, Zygmunt Bauman, Arjun Appadurai, Wolfgang Streeck and Eva Illouz, grapple with our current predicament, framing it in a broader historical context, discussing possible future trajectories and considering ways that we might combat this reactionary turn. <br /><br /> <i>The Great Regression</i> is a key intervention that will be of great value to all those concerned about recent developments and wondering how best to respond to this unprecedented challenge to the very core of liberal democracy and internationalism across the world today.<br /><br /> For more information, see: www.thegreatregression.eu

Author : Paul Mason
Genre :  Politics & Current Events  Books  Nonfiction  Social Science 
Price :  $9.99
Release Date :  2012-01-09
Description :  The world is facing a wave of uprisings, protests and revolutions: Arab dictators swept away, public spaces occupied, slum-dwellers in revolt, cyberspace buzzing with utopian dreams. Events we were told were consigned to history—democratic revolt and social revolution—are being lived by millions of people.<br /><br />In this compelling new book, Paul Mason explores the causes and consequences of this great unrest. From Cairo to Athens, Wall Street and Westminster to Manila, Mason goes in search of the changes in society, technology and human behavior that have propelled a generation onto the streets in search of social justice. In a narrative that blends historical insight with first-person reportage, Mason shines a light on these new forms of activism, from the vast, agile networks of cyberprotest to the culture wars and tent camps of the #occupy movement. The events, says Mason, reflect the expanding power of the individual and call for new political alternatives to elite rule and global poverty.

Description :  A washed up TV reporter stumbles onto a corruption scandal in Western China. Pursued through the desert by a psychotic spin-doctor and a world-weary cop, he discovers the real China: illegal metal mines, a fashion-crazed gang of girl bikers, a whole commune of Tiananmen Square survivors and the up-market sleaze-joints of Beijing.<br /><br /> En route, he clashes with a stellar cast of people-traffickers, prostitutes and TV execs. But then the unquiet dead begin to intervene: ghosts from his own past and the past of Chinese Communism; the “spirits that hover three feet above our heads” of Chinese folklore.<br /><br /> <i>Rare Earth</i> is a story about love, journalism, ghosts, metallurgy, vintage militaria and large motorcycles set in the badlands of Inner Mongolia and Ningxia. It is about the west’s inability to understand the East; one man’s epic journey across a dying landscape, where “thousands of pairs of eyes peer beyond grimy windowpanes into the moonless sky, looking for something better.”

Description :  <b>A radical anti-capitalist alternative to Eurozone austerity</b><br /><br /> On the 25th January 2015 the Greek people voted in an election of historic importance—not just for Greece but potentially all of Europe. The radical party Syriza was elected and austerity and the neoliberal agenda is being challenged. Suddenly it seems as if there is an alternative. But what?<br /><br /> The Eurozone is in a deep and prolonged crisis. It is now clear that monetary union is a historic failure, beyond repair—and certainly not in the interests of Europe’s working people.<br /><br /> Building on the economic analysis of two of Europe’s leading thinkers, Heiner Flassbeck and Costas Lapavitsas (a candidate standing for election on Syriza’s list), <i>Against the Troika</i> is the first book to propose a strategic left-wing plan for how peripheral countries could exit the euro. With a change in government in Greece, and looming political transformations in countries such as Spain, this major intervention lays out a radical, anti-capitalist programme at a critical juncture for Europe. The final three chapters offer a detailed postmortem of the Greek catastrophe, explain what can be learned from it—and provide a possible alternative.<br /><br /><i> Against the Troika</i> is a practical blueprint for real change in a continent wracked by crisis and austerity.<br /><br /><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>

This book deals with all three representations, noting the lines between such clear divisions are increasingly blurred and the concepts of reality, realism and representation, slippery and complex.

18 Captured by the Media

Author : Paul Mason
Genre :  Social Science  Books  Nonfiction 
Price :  $52.99
Release Date :  2013-05-13
Description :  This book turns on the television, opens the newspaper, goes to the cinema and assesses how punishment is performed in media culture, investigating the regimes of penal representation and how they may contribute to a populist and punitive criminological imagination. It places media discourse in prisons firmly within the arena of penal policy and public opinion, suggesting that while Bad Girls, The Shawshank Redemption, internet jail cams, advertising and debates about televising executions continue to ebb and flow in contemporary culture, the persistence of this spectacle of punishment - its contested meaning and its politics of representation - demands investigation. Alongside chapters addressing the construction of popular images of prison and the death penalty in television and film, Captured by the Media also has contributions from prison reform groups and prison practitioners which discuss forms of media intervention in penal debate. This book provides a highly readable exploration of media discourse on prisons and punishment, and its relationship to public attitudes and government penal policy. At the same time it engages with the &#39;cultural turn&#39; within criminology and offers an original contribution to discussion of the relationship between prison, public and the state. It will be essential reading for students in both media studies and criminology as well as practitioners and commentators in these fields.

20 Postcapitalismo

Author : Paul Mason
Genre :  Business & Personal Finance  Books 
Price :  $11.99
Release Date :  2016-03-17
Description :  L’agonia del capitalismo è irreversibile. Il prezzo della sua sopravvivenza è un futuro di caos, oligarchia e nuovi conflitti.La crisi economica scoppiata nel 2008 si è trasformata in una crisi sociale e infine in un autentico sconvolgimento dell’ordine mondiale: oggi, questo capitalismo malato e segnato dal predominio della finanza scarica i costi della recessione sui più deboli; si dimostra incapace di far fronte alle minacce del riscaldamento globale, dell’invecchiamento della popolazione e dell’incontrollato boom demografico nel Sud del mondo; e mette a rischio la democrazia e la pace. Ma superare il capitalismo è possibile. E mentre fra la popolazione serpeggia un senso di paura e rassegnazione, dalle tecnologie informatiche emerge la possibilità di una svolta radicale. La nuova economia di rete, fondata sulla conoscenza, mina infatti i presupposti stessi del capitalismo – riducendo la necessità del lavoro e abbassando sempre più i costi di produzione –, e i beni d’informazione erodono la capacità del mercato di formare correttamente i prezzi, perché se il mercato si basa sulla scarsità, l’informazione è inveceabbondante. Nel frattempo, si sta affermando un nuovo modo di produzione collaborativo, che non risponde ai dettami del profitto e della gerarchia manageriale, ma ai principi della condivisione, della responsabilità reciproca e della gratuità.In questo libro subito protagonista del dibattito internazionale, Paul Mason ripercorre la storia del capitalismo e dei suoi critici – da Marx in avanti – e traccia una mappa delle sue attuali contraddizioni, in particolare fra l’abbondanza di informazioni gratuite e un sistema di monopoli, banche e governi che cerca di mantenere ogni bene scarso e commercializzabile. La sua analisi mostra come dalle ceneri del fallimento economico dell’Occidente sia nata la possibilità di costruire una società più umana, equa e sostenibile. Ma il capitalismo non può essere abbattuto dall’alto, a tappe forzate. Spetta a noi farci agente collettivo del cambiamento storico; abbiamo gli strumenti per riappropriarci del futuro: il postcapitalismo non è un’utopia.

Release Date :  2016-04-04
Description :  Επί δύο αιώνες ο καπιταλισμός πορεύεται μέσα σε μια δίνη συνεχών αλλαγών, μεταξύ ανόδου και πτώσης, αλλά πάντοτε βγαίνει ενδυναμωμένος και μεταμορφωμένος. Ο Πωλ Μέισον εξετάζει την ταραχώδη ιστορία του και αναρωτιέται αν σήμερα βιώνουμε μια τόσο καθοριστική μετάλλαξη ώστε ο καπιταλισμός, το ασύλληπτα περίπλοκο σύστημα που επιτρέπει τη λειτουργία ολόκληρων κοινωνιών, να έχει φτάσει στα όριά του και να εξελίσσεται σε κάτι τελείως διαφορετικό. Στο επίκεντρο αυτών των αλλαγών είναι οι τεχνολογίες πληροφοριών και επικοινωνιών. Μια επανάσταση που μπορεί να επαναπροσδιορίσει ολοκληρωτικά τους τρόπους με τους οποίους κατανοούμε έννοιες όπως η εργασία, η παραγωγή, η αξία. Μια επανάσταση που δύναται να καταστρέψει την οικονομία των αγορών και της ατομικής ιδιοκτησίας, πράγμα που έχει ήδη δρομολογηθεί σύμφωνα με τον συγγραφέα. Σχεδόν χωρίς να τα έχουμε αντιληφθεί, στις σκοτεινές γωνιές και στα κενά του συστήματος, ολόκληρα κομμάτια της οικονομίας αλλάζουν. Εμφανίζονται αγαθά και υπηρεσίες που δεν υπακούν στα προστάγματα του νεοφιλελευθερισμού: εναλλακτικά νομίσματα, τράπεζες χρόνου, συνεργατικά εγχειρήματα, αυτοδιαχειριζόμενοι διαδικτυακοί τόποι. Οι άνθρωποι αλλάζουν άρδην τη συμπεριφορά τους, ανακαλύπτουν νέες μορφές ιδιοκτησίας, δανεισμού και επιχειρηματικότητας σε πείσμα του κυρίαρχου συστήματος των ημερών μας. Σε αυτό το ριζοσπαστικό βιβλίο ο Πωλ Μέισον υποδεικνύει πώς μπορούμε να αναγεννηθούμε από τις στάχτες της τελευταίας οικονομικής κρίσης και να δημιουργήσουμε μια πιο βιώσιμη και κοινωνικά πιο δίκαιη παγκόσμια οικονομία. Υποστηρίζει τεκμηριωμένα ότι η έξοδος από τον καπιταλισμό δεν είναι πια ένα ουτοπικό όραμα. Για πρώτη φορά στην ιστορία της ανθρωπότητας, έχοντας πλήρη επίγνωση των όσων συντελούνται γύρω μας, μπορούμε να προβλέπουμε και να διαμορφώνουμε εμείς τις κοσμογονικές αλλαγές, όχι απλώς να αντιδρούμε σε αυτές.
