Abstract

In General Theory of the Precariat: Great Recession, Revolution, Reaction, Alex Foti aims to bridge a gap in current literature on precarity by integrating the historical emergence, political role and demands of social movements and the precariat into economic theory. While this concise book does not yet offer the ‘general theory’ of its title, it is a brilliant analysis of the composition of the precariat that will be a must-read for anyone interested in social movement studies, radical democracy and Marxian class theory, writes Alessio Kolioulis.
