Critiques of capital in modern Britain and America : transatlantic exchanges 1800 to the present day

edited by Mark Bevir and Frank Trentmann

This is a collection of essays by British and American historians and political theorists. Moving beyond a conventional action/reaction view of capitalism and its critics, the volume explores how critical traditions and beliefs have helped to shape capitalism. Chapters follow diverse critiques in Britain and America and explore their Atlantic and imperial exchanges. The volume includes chapters on: questions of law and property in the Victorian empire; traditions of land reform in 19th century America and Britain; the influence of American romanticism on British socialism; the role of Britain in American progressivism; American and British consumer protection; the evolution of trusteeship and ideas of cosmopolitan democracy; the "third way"; and narratives of globalization. The editors' introduction offers a critical, historiographical survey and, by stepping beyond the dogmatic opposition between postmodernists and empiricists, provides a new research agenda for an integrated study of capitalism and its critics.
