About the book:

In this provocative update of the Marxian framework, Gérard Duménil and
Dominique Lévy reassert the explanatory power of Marx’s theories of history
and political economy while incorporating contemporary transformations of
class patterns and relations of production. They show that a transition is
now underway towards a new mode of production, managerialism, shaped by the
class of managers who are gradually moving from an intermediate class
position to that of a new ruling class. The transition towards
managerialism is much more advanced than usually understood.

The authors provide an overview and interpretation of major economic and
political trends in the current hybrid social formation of managerial
capitalism, with a special emphasis on its current neoliberal features in
the U.S. and Europe, and its financial imperial reach worldwide.

Their historical analysis harks back to earlier struggles for social
progress: the bourgeois revolutions, utopian socialism and anarchism, the
early communist undertakings, the construction of self-proclaimed socialism
and its failure. They conclude with a reassessment of the prospects for
human emancipation today.
