About this product
- DescriptionMan is born free and is everywhere in debt,A declared the Ecomist in the summer of 2010, a cheeky admission that indebtedness and liberation are once again on the agenda across the globe. In this timely book, cultural critic Richard Dienst examines the current condition of indebtedness from a variety of angles, ranging from the financial crisis and global poverty to media politics and radical theory. Written in an engaging and forceful style, the book draws upon a surprising array of materials, including Obama's national security strategy, the architecture of Prada stores, press photos of Bo, and a fairy tale told by Karl Marx. Moving beyond the dominant pieties and widespread anxieties surrounding the topic, Dienst reconceives indebtedness as a social, ecomic, and political bond, where the crushing weight of objectified wealth comes face to face with new demands for equality and solidarity.
- Author BiographyRichard Dienst is the author of Still Life in Real Time: Theory after Television and a coeditor of Reading the Shape of the World. He teaches in the Department of English at Rutgers University.
