Monsters of the Market: Zombies, Vampires and Global Capitalism
Winner of the 2011 Isaac and Tamara Deutscher Memorial Prize
Drawing on folklore, literature and popular culture, this book links tales of monstrosity from England to recent vampire- and zombie-fables from sub-Saharan Africa, and it connects these to Marx’s persistent use of monster-metaphors in his descriptions of capitalism. Reading across these tales of the grotesque, McNally offers a novel account of the cultural economy of the global market-system.
