Description: In this second edition, Henry Giroux uses the metaphor of the zombie to highlight how America has embraced a machinery of social and civil death that chills any vestige of a robust democracy. He charts the various ways in which the political, corporate, and intellectual zombies that rule America embrace death-dealing institutions such as a bloated military, the punishing state, a form of predatory capitalism, and an authoritarian, death-driven set of policies that sanction torture, targeted assassinations, and a permanent war psychology. Giroux calls for a systemic alternative to zombie capitalism through a pedagogical imperative to address and inform a new cultural imaginary and mode of individual subjectivity and agency in order to build a broad-based social movement that can imagine the reclaiming of public spaces where democratic formative cultures can flourish and resources in which equality and democracy inform and enrich each other.
