Monsters of the Market: Zombies, Vampires and Global Capitalism

Front Cover
Haymarket Books, 2012 - Business & Economics - 296 pages
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.
