Transforming Capitalism

Series edited by Ian Bruff (Managing Editor), Julie Cupples, Gemma Edwards, Laura Horn, Simon Springer and Jacqui True

This book series provides a platform for the publication of path-breaking and interdisciplinary scholarship which seeks to understand and critique capitalism along four key lines: crisis, development, inequality, and resistance. Through this approach the series alerts us to how capitalism is always evolving and hints at how we could also transform capitalism itself through our own actions.

Transforming Capitalism is rooted in the vibrant, broad and pluralistic debates spanning a range of approaches in a number of fields and disciplines. As such, it will appeal to scholars working in sociology, geography, cultural studies, international studies, development, social theory, politics, labour and welfare studies, economics, anthropology, law, and more. It publishes books, in the form of monographs, edited volumes and occasional translations of essential works, which address numerous topics and issues rooted in these debates and literatures. The series has at its core the assumption that the world is in various states of transformation, and that these transformations may build upon earlier paths of change and conflict while also potentially producing new forms of crisis, development, inequality, and resistance. The terms crisis, development, inequality, and resistance can be interpreted in a range of ways, and we are interested in publishing creative and innovative monographs across a range of fields, topics, and perspectives.
