Description
Be prepared for a mind-opening experience.
-The Christian Century
""Highly readable; excellent for students. . . . A tonic and eye-opener for anyone who wants a politics that works.""
-Jane Mansbridge, Adams Professor, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University
""America Beyond Capitalism comes at a critical time in our history-when we all know our system isn't working but we are not sure what can be done about it. This book takes us outside the confines of orthodox thinking, imagines a new way of living together, and then brings that vision back into reality with a set of eminently practical ideas that promise a truly democratic society.""
-Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States
""Succeeds brilliantly in taking the Jeffersonian spirit into the last bastion of privilege in America, offering workable solutions for making the American economy one that is truly of, by, and for the people.""
-Jeremy Rifkin, author of The European Dream: How Europe's Vision of the Future Is Quietly Eclipsing the American Dream
""The kind of careful, well-researched, and practical alternative progressives have been seeking. And it's more-visionary, hopeful, even inspirational. I highly recommend it.""
-Juliet Schor, author of The Overspent American: Why We Want What We Don't Need
""A compelling and convincing story of the future.""
-William Greider, author of The Soul of Capitalism: Opening Paths to a Moral Economy.
