`The discussion of the crisis of global capitalism offered in this book marks a breakthrough. The work ranges far more widely than the usual crop of purely economic analyses and rightly so.' Anthony Giddens, Former Director of the London School of Economics and Political Science `All economies are culture-that is the lens through which this compelling analysis looks at the on-going crisis of capitalism. From this follows the imperative: cooperate or fail! This book is a thought-provoking, interdisciplinary diagnosis of a world in turmoil.' Ulrich Beck, Professor of Sociology, University of Munich `Five years of crisis and upheaval have shaken the world. Aftermath takes up the question of where we go now. Castells and his collaborators show the depth of challenges, the diversity of global circumstances and paths, andhappilyreasons for cautious optimism amid the tumult. This is an important moment in history and an important book for this moment.' Craig Calhoun, Director of the London School of Economics and Political Science
