Reviews

A powerful, instructive and moving guide to the many avenues of systemic challenge and positive movement-building energies and strategies now emerging around the world.--Gar Alperovitz, author of America Beyond Capitalism
The global Great Recession and the deepening climate crisis have made abundantly clear that capitalism is on a collision course with human and ecological well-being. The difficult question is: what to do about it? Getting Past Capitalism is filled with rich insights and fresh proposals for answering that question. Cynthia Kaufman writes clearly and powerfully, offering readers, as her subtitle promises, 'history, vision, and hope.'--Robert Pollin, University of Massachusetts-Amherst
Expresses in clear, concise language thoughts that likely have been bumping around in the minds of many of us who reject capitalism. The book is particularly powerful because of its modesty; Kaufman promises no new grand theory and instead offers insights that we all can use in our daily lives.--NationofChange
