Reviews

"Take Back the Economy is a valuable, engaged accessible and very clear addition to the Community Economics Collective oeuvre, and I hope it will be read widely and--more importantly--change the world."-Antipode "Readable, practical, radical."-Sociology "A most exquisitely conducted study into the not-for-profit or other side of organisations. It impressively shows that `another world' is not only possible but already here."-Organization "Beneficial for the use of individuals looking to alter their environmental or economic impact, students interested in administration or economics, or researchers and planners seeking alternatives for their communities."-Journal of Appalachian Studies "Take Back the Economy is the single most farsighted and practical work enlightening us on the path to a steady transition toward a genuine postcapitalist world. It is based on the presupposition that reorienting the economy means much more than the control of production-it means reinventing ourselves, our communities, and our world in profound ways. Out of this act of `reframing' there emerges a novel understanding of work, enterprise, market, property, even finance. In this wonderful new work in the tradition of Gibson-Graham, students, activists, movements, and communities will find a toolkit for ethical and effective action any time, any place."-Arturo Escobar, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
