Global Civil War: Capitalism Post-Pandemic
Sat, November 19, 2022 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM$5.00 – $12.00
With William I. Robinson
Global Civil War provides a big-picture account of how the coronavirus pandemic and new digital technologies have transformed capitalism and the entire global economy and society. Analyzing the concentration of power and control in the hands of corporate conglomerates, tech giants, megabanks, and the military-industrial complex, the book documents the extent of unprecedented global inequalities as the mass of humanity faces violent dispossession and uncertain survival. The book issues a dire warning against the emergence of a dystopic digitalized dictatorship but also finds great hope and inspiration in the burgeoning social movements of the poor and the dispossessed as humanity descends into global civil war.
William I. Robinson is Distinguished Professor of Sociology, Global Studies, and Latin American Studies at the University of California at Santa Barbara. Among his many books are Global Capitalism and the Crisis of Humanity (2014); Into the Tempest: Essays on the New Global Capitalism (2018); and The Global Police State (2020).
Global Civil War is available from the publisher, PM Press.
