The Communist Horizon (Pocket Communism) by Jodi Dean


Rising thinker on the resurgence of the communist idea.

In this new title in Verso’s Pocket Communism sequence, Jodi Dean unshackles the communist ideal from the failures of the Soviet Union. In an age when the malfeasance of world banking has alerted exploited populations across the world to the unsustainability of an economic device predicated on perpetual growth, it’s time the left ended its melancholic accommodation with capitalism.

withIn the new capitalism of networked data applied sciences, our very means to keep up a correspondence is exploited, however revolution is still conceivable if we organize on the foundation of our fashionable and collective needs. Inspecting the expertise of the Occupy motion, Dean argues that such spontaneity can’t become a revolution and it needs to constitute itself as a celebration.

An revolutionary work of pressing relevance, The Communist Horizon offers nothing not up to a manifesto for a brand new collective politics.
