Cauldron of Anxiety, A
Capitalism has passed its use-by-date, but a better, saner world is possible.
The veritable tsunami of anxieties that are affecting individual lives, the increasingly dysfunctional nature of society and the potential catastrophes of global conflict and of climate change, have a common cause. The inability of capitalism or the state to respond to existential crises and internal contradictions is the cause of what William Briggs terms A Cauldron of Anxiety. Briggs defends a Marxist perspective that would challenge this and provides an optimistic vision for the future.

A Cauldron of Anxiety is a book for anyone left feeling wretched by the state of our world: the poverty, the degradation of our environment, the brutality of our rulers. Briggs blames all our ills singly and compellingly on the capitalist system, insisting that it is the monster against which all of us should unite. He helps us to see a world beyond the misery of our present. ~ David Renton, author of The New Authoritarians: Convergence on the Right
