    Title: Capitalism in the Web of Life
    Author: JASON W. MOORE

    Finance. Climate. Food. Work. How are the crises of the twenty-first century connected? In "Capitalism in the Web of Life," Jason W. Moore argues that the sources of today s global turbulence have a common cause: capitalism as a way of organizing nature, including human nature. Drawing on environmentalist, feminist, and Marxist thought, Moore offers a groundbreaking new synthesis: capitalism as a world-ecology of wealth, power, and nature. Capitalism s greatest strength and the source of its problems is its capacity to create Cheap Natures: labor, food, energy, and raw materials. That capacity is now in question. Rethinking capitalism through the pulsing and renewing dialectic of humanity-in-nature, Moore takes readers on a journey from the rise of capitalism to the modern mosaic of crisis. "Capitalism in the Web of Life" shows how the critique of capitalism-in-nature rather than capitalism "and" nature is key to understanding our predicament, and to pursuing the politics of liberation in the century ahead."
