Product Details


“Tyranny, Inc. is a powerful and convincing account of the dangers that capitalism poses to the country’s political foundations.”Foreign Affairs

“Compelling as a work of narrative journalism.”The Washington Post

Tyranny, Inc. is a book . . . in the pessimistic spirit of Barbara Ehrenreich’s Nickel and Dimed.”—Ross Douthat, The New York Times

“[Ahmari] is a deft storyteller. . . . He highlights genuine injustices, such as the way some firms abuse gag clauses, non-compete agreements, and the arbitration process.”The Economist

“Ahmari tells a compelling story of the tyranny exercised by unrestrained capitalism.”Los Angeles Review of Books

“A scathing critique of capitalism.”—Michelle Goldberg, The New York Times

“Ahmari . . . combines anecdote and analysis with the awful ring of truth. It would be exhilarating if the portrait were not so grim.”—James Galbraith, American Affairs

“Well-crafted . . .  a convincing portrait of a market economy that is ‘free’ only for those who have the resources and connections to manipulate it to their advantage.”—Michael Kazin, The New Republic

“Sohrab Ahmari’s book is a masterpiece of clarity that should be read by everyone who cares about where our societies are moving.”—Slavoj Žižek

“This book is full of truths the ruling class doesn’t want you to hear. Defy them. Read it.”—Senator Josh Hawley

“Ahmari takes us on a devastating tour of the ways in which corporate power ruins lives in the United States.”Jacobin

Tyranny, Inc. is a remarkably thorough and entertaining book on the ways that private enterprise dominates the lives of ordinary people. It’s a stinging rebuttal to the right-wing claim that oppression flows from government. It also manages the rare feat of feeling prescient about a problem that’s centuries old. . . . An essential salvo in a very long war.”—Fredrik Deboer, author of The Cult of Smart

“For too long, elite institutions dismissed and minimized America’s working class. From the dystopian warehouses of Amazon to the (seemingly) spotless halls of venture-capital firms, Ahmari’s latest book shows that there is real tyranny at work in too many businesses. Open-minded readers will find a lot to mull over.”—Senator Marco Rubio

“Ahmari’s background, intellect, and fierce independence make him uniquely situated to illuminate the rise of authoritarianism in the United States.” —Glenn Greenwald

“One of our leading thinkers alerts us to one of the greatest threats to freedom today.” —Michael Lind, author of Hell to Pay: How the Suppression of Wages Is Destroying America

“Challenging conservative free marketeers as much as progressive liberals, this book is a compelling inquiry into one of the great dilemmas of our time.” —John Gray, author of False Dawn: The Delusions of Global Capitalism

“A trenchant critique of neoliberal capitalism that offers pointed remedies.”—Kirkus Reviews
