Politics / Current Affairs
Capitalism shapes every aspect of our world, beyond just our economic structures; it moulds our values and influences the way we write laws, wage wars and even conduct personal relationships.
From its beginnings to the present day, Capitalism: A Graphic Guidetells the story of capitalism's remarkable and often ruthless rise, evolving through strife and struggle as much as innovation and enterprise.
This non-fiction graphic novel explores the key developments that have shaped our modern world, from early banking to the Opium Wars, financial crashes, the rise of service economies and concerns about sustainability. It also introduces us to the leading proponents and critics of capitalism, providing both a theoretical and practical understanding of this fascinating subject.
