Despite the credit crunch, Capitalism now dominates the globe and influences every aspect of our world from laws, wars and government to interpersonal relationships. Tracing capitalism from its beginning to the present day, Dan Cryan and Sharron Shatil, alongside Piero's brilliant graphics, look at its practical and theoretical impact. They cover the major economic, social and political developments that shaped the world we live in, and examine the views both for and against, from writers such as Adorno and Marx. Capitalism has influenced everything in the 21st-century world. This is the essential guide.
