This dictionary is an alternative and a counter-balance to the many political dictionaries that ignore or marginalize the history and influence of anti-capitalist movements. It paints a rich picture of the ideas and issues that inform today's anti-capitalist activity.
The Anti-Capitalist Dictionary is organised in an easily accessible alphabetical format, with self-contained, cross-referenced entries that introduce and explain concepts and issues that are integral to understanding today's global movement. The Dictionary demonstrates how the meaning and relevance of some of these have evolved and illustrates a linkage between past and present activity that might be unfamiliar to people who are involved or interested in the movement's current manifestations. This Dictionary has international coverage and will prove invaluable to students of politics as well as to activists and the general reader.
