The Communist Horizon: (Pocket Communism)
Jodi Dean (Author)
Available / dispatched within 1 - 4 weeks
In this new title in Verso's Pocket Communism series, Jodi Dean argues for the continued force of communism today. It should be our Pole star, the focus of our journey. With communism as our horizon, the field of possibilities for revolutionary theory and practice starts to change shape, and barriers to action fall away. Our combined strength replaces our separate weaknesses, our collective desire replaces individual drive, and mobilized wills replace passive indecision. When the illusion that capitalism is the only reality dissolves, anything is possible. She shows that the global anti-capitalist movement associated with Occupy Wall Street gets its bearings from the communist horizon as it expresses the intensity of collective desires to organize against the corporate and financial elite. Jodi Dean presents nothing less than a manifesto for a new politics and a new collectivity.
