FROM THE REVIEW: "Amidst the social sciences scholarship that is dominated by either neoclassical economics or Marxist views, Capital as Power presents a thought-provoking and erudite argumentation of an alternative understanding of the nature of capital. . . . The quintessential strength of this volume is its extensive historicisation of the major problems that haunt political economy, followed by a clear presentation of key paradigms in understanding capital; before eventually presenting their ambitious goal of reintroducing power dynamics as the ultimate working principle behind capital and its accompanying processes. . . . I suspect that this work will be an eventual classic in political economy for its deeply impressive challenge to the orthodoxy of the discipline, as well as its remarkable survey of the state of the scholarship on capital."
