Wars & Capital Book Club

Posted by Sandra Borden for Study of Ethics in Society

William Santiago-Valles, associate professor emeritus of Africana Studies, will lead discussions of Wars & Capital by Eric Alliez & Maurizio Lazzarato. 

This book is about how war, money, and the violence monopoly of the State are the ontological elements constituting capitalism. The economy does not replace war, but continues war through the State's regulation of currency, economic sanctions and war making (by various means) at home and abroad. Topics to be discussed include the state, war machine and money; appropriation of the war machine; permanent civil war; new colonial wars; total wars; Cold War strategy games; and the fractal wars of capital. 

Participants will receive their Webex link about one week before the first meeting. The first 10 sign-ups receive a free book. Students who attend all scheduled meetings of their book club earn Signature credit.
