Samir Amin, one of the most influential economists today, has produced another
groundbreaking work. Spectres of Capitalism cuts through the current
intellectual fashions that assume a global capitalist triumph, taking the
occasion of the 150th anniversary of Marx and Engels' classic tract, the
Communist Manifesto, to focus upon the aspirations of the destitute millions
of the post-Cold War era. In this succinct theoretical text, Amin examines the
changing notion of crisis in capitalism; misconceptions of the free market
model; the various distortions of Marx's method; the role of culture in
revolutions; the decline of the « law of value » in economics; the
philosophical roots of postmodernism; how telecommunications affect ideology;
and the myth of « pure economics. » Amin has a broad following among students
of economics, who value his analyses of the intricacies of capitalist
development, both in the major powers and in the third world.
