Book summary

This new edition of "False Necessity" marks the beginning of Verso's reissuing of Unger's major works in political and social thought, first published under the collective title of "Politics". This book develops a radical alternative to Marxism and a progressive alternative to the dominant ideological conceptions of neo-liberalism and social democracy. It explores new institutions that can democratize markets and empower individuals. For this new edition, Unger has written an introduction that explores the limits of our understanding of society and our practice of politics. [via]
