About the Author

Manuel Castells is University Professor and Wallis Annenberg Chair of Communication Technology and Society at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, as well as Professor Emeritus of Sociology and Planning at the University of California, Berkeley.


"Manuel Castells and his colleagues have underscored a fundamental truth: that all economics are cultural forms. And just as the financial crisis of 2008 demonstrated the bankruptcy of neoliberal capitalism and the human suffering inflicted by it, so too it spawned countless experiments in alternative ways of organizing economic life based on cultures of sharing and solidarity, some of which are explored in this timely and pathbreaking volume. A must-read." Paul Mason, author of PostCapitalism: A Guide to Our Future "Fine collection of essays." Times Higher Education Supplement
