Published by NYU Press, the Possible Futures book series gathers together leading social scientists to address the significance of current crises in a series of short, accessible volumes. The first three books take on the past, present, and future of the global financial crisis, suggesting that it has an informative history, that the consequences could be much more basic than stock market declines, and that only fundamental changes—not fiscal band-aids—can head off future repetitions.

Contributors: Immanuel Wallerstein, David Harvey, Saskia Sassen, James Kenneth Galbraith, Manuel Castells, Nancy Fraser, Rogers Brubaker, David Held, Mary Kaldor, Vadim Volkov, Giovanni Arrighi, Beverly Silver, Fernando Coronil.

Read “From the Current Crisis to Possible Futures,” an introduction to the book series by Craig Calhoun, Series Editor.
