About the book

The 59th annual volume of the Socialist Register examines the growth of corporate power and other important organizational trends in global capitalism. It rejects such notions as stakeholder capitalism and reviews the organization and strategies of unions and the left, and its current and potential practices, as it searches for new routes to socialism.
