Comments on the book Globalization and Technocapitalism: The Political Economy of Corporate Power and Technological Domination

(from the book’s cover)


“We hear about the ‘knowledge economy’, watch the processes of financialization wreak havoc, grow concerned about the increasing involvement of corporations in all aspects of life.  Suarez-Villa shows how these phenomena of 21st century capitalism are related, connecting them into a powerful theoretical framework.  Refreshingly clear, despite the nuanced and sophisticated analyses he develops, his work is well-grounded in careful research and the broader literature.  This is a ground-breaking work delivering a theory of contemporary capitalism that is at once original, persuasive, elegantly articulated, and likely correct.”

Globalization and Technocapitalism is a must-read for anyone concerned with understanding the crisis of contemporary capitalism.  Luis Suarez-Villa has combined immense research with acute analysis to produce one of the most important books in years.”
