Radical Book Club

22 November, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join Ulverston Radical Book Club for an online discussion about the November book with the author herself, Jane Hardy on Wednesday, November 22, 2023 at 19:00 GMT.

Nothing to lose but our chains

Through a range of case studies, from cleaners to university lecturers, Hardy looks at how workers are challenging employers’ assaults in the neoliberal workplace, comparing these new actions to a long history of British working class struggle. She explores the historic role of migrants in the British workforce, from the Windrush generation to more recent arrivals from the European Union, as well as placing womens’ collective action centre stage. Analysing the rise of robotics and artificial intelligence, she refutes claims that we are entering a post-capitalist society.

Nothing to Lose but our Chains is an optimistic exploration into the power of the working class, showing that no matter what tools capitalism uses, it can always be resisted.
Jane Hardy was Professor of Political Economy at the University of Hertfordshire. She is now an independent writer and researcher.
