Summary note
This book brings together leading academics and activists to address the possibilities for qualitative social change beyond neoliberalism, providing introductory essays on alternative societies, transition, and resistance. Bringing together discussions on universal basic income, actually existing communism, parecon, circular economies, workers co-operatives, fully automated luxury communism,' trade unionism, and party politics, the volume provides one of the first scholarly interventions to systematically evaluate possibilities for transition and resistance across theoretical, political, and disciplinary traditions. Neal Harris is a Lecturer in Sociology at Oxford Brookes University, UK. Onur Acaroglu is an Instructor at Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey, and a co-founder of the Free University of London (FUL), UK.
