Product Details

Praise

“With scathing wit, Lafargue takes aim at the ideological underpinnings of late-stage capitalism. . . . A sly, irreverent sibling to The Communist Manifesto, Lafargue’s argument against our willing servitude to what we’d now call hustle culture and growth-at-all-costs is as trenchant and necessary as the day it was written, if not more so.” —David Wright, Library Journal

“The writing is vivid, pointed, hilarious. To paraphrase Elizabeth Bishop, Lafargue is scathing, but cheerful.” — Michael Autrey, Booklist

“[Lafargue’s] ideas are even more relevant to today’s enslaved societies than they were when they were first written.” —Tom Hodgkinson, editor of The Idler
