Synopsis

In the wake of the global financial crisis and ongoing savage government spending cuts across the world, Garry Leech addresses a pressing and necessary topic: the nature of contemporary capitalism and how it inherently generates inequality and structural violence. Drawing on fascinating case studies, including the forced dispossession of farmers in India and Mexico, and deaths from preventable diseases in sub-Saharan Africa, Leech provocatively argues that global capitalism constitutes a form of genocide against the poor, particularly in the global South. Essential and eye-opening, Capitalism: A Structural Genocide questions the legitimacy of a system that inevitably results in such large-scale human suffering, while going beyond mere critique to offer a more egalitarian, democratic and sustainable global alternative.
