Summary
"Controversial manifesto by acclaimed cultural theorist debated by leading writers Fredric Jameson's path-breaking essay An American Utopia radically questions standard leftist notions of an eman-cipated society, advocating--among other things--universal conscription as the model for the communist reorganization of soci-ety, fully acknowledging envy and resentment as the central problem of a communist society, and rejecting the dreams of over-coming the division between work and leisure. Endorsing the axiom that to change the world one should begin by changing our dreams about how we imagine an emancipated society, Jameson's text is ideally placed to trigger a debate on possible and imag-inable alternatives to global capitalism. In addition to Jameson's essay, the volume brings reactions to it by philosophers and political and cultural analysts, as well as an epilogue from Jameson. Many will be appalled at what they will encounter--there will be blood. But what if one has to spill such (ideological) blood to give the left a new chance?--
