The Reproduction of Empire of Capital through Incursions of Capitalist Processes into Non-capitalist Processes Since 1989
Metadata[+] Show full item record
This dissertation lays out a theoretical framework for a non-capitalocentric theory of the empire of capital since 1989. Following a complementary holistic approach, it sees the economy as reflecting the society that it is a part of. Thereby, certainly, the economy comprises the capitalist system but it also comprises kinship, community and state systems, necessary for the capitalist system to reproduce itself. The incursions of capitalist processes into the non-capitalist processes is an entry point into conceptualizing empire. This dissertation examines the incursions of capitalist processes into non-capitalist processes and their effect on the politics of identity and emancipation. Its contribution lies in its focus on reproduction and on the relationship between capitalism and systems on the ‘outside’ of its empire.
