    Transforming Capitalism

Series edited by *Ian Bruff (Managing Editor), Julie Cupples, Gemma 
Edwards, Laura Horn, Simon Springer* and *Jacqui True*

This book series provides a platform for the publication of 
path-breaking and interdisciplinary scholarship which seeks to 
understand and critique capitalism along four key lines: crisis, 
development, inequality, and resistance. Through this approach the 
series alerts us to how capitalism is always evolving and hints at how 
we could also transform capitalism itself through our own actions.

/Transforming Capitalism/ is rooted in the vibrant, broad and 
pluralistic debates spanning a range of approaches in a number of fields 
and disciplines. As such, it will appeal to scholars working in 
sociology, geography, cultural studies, international studies, 
development, social theory, politics, labour and welfare studies, 
economics, anthropology, law, and more. It publishes books, in the form 
of monographs, edited volumes and occasional translations of essential 
works, which address numerous topics and issues rooted in these debates 
and literatures. The series has at its core the assumption that the 
world is in various states of transformation, and that these 
transformations may build upon earlier paths of change and conflict 
while also potentially producing new forms of crisis, development, 
inequality, and resistance. The terms crisis, development, inequality, 
and resistance can be interpreted in a range of ways, and we are 
interested in publishing creative and innovative monographs across a 
range of fields, topics, and perspectives.

The series welcomes proposals 
on topics including, but not limited to:

• The multiple forms of crisis which characterise capitalism – past, 
present, and future
• Variegated forms and crises of social reproduction and gender regimes
• Socio-economic restructuring and resistances at various levels (local, 
national, transnational)
• Post/decolonial approaches to the study and critique of capitalism
• Insurgent and other new forms of citizenship
• Critical pedagogies and the potential for emancipatory transformations 
of knowledge
• Economic subjectivity and the relationship between identity and capitalism
• Social movements seeking another world to the present
• Intersections of inequality, or the foregrounding of one form of 
inequality (for instance, gender, race, class), across a range of scales 
and cases
• Authoritarian responses to crisis and the growing fragility of 
political authority
• The neoliberalisation and commodification of nature
• New imperialism(s) and the rise of global developmental liberalism
