Keywords for Capitalism
From “liberal” to “the economy,” the terms used by pundits and politicians to explain our civic structures tend to obscure as much as they reveal about the reality they ostensibly describe. Yet the enduring vocabulary of radical movement-building can be equally opaque when filtered through both the distortions of the status quo and the partisan interests of the activist left.

Join John Patrick Leary and Greg Grandin for a discussion about the language of power and politics, marking the release of Leary’s new book, Keywords for Capitalism.
