The first step towards changing the system is to analyze and understand it. Intellectuals play a key role in this process - and social scientists in particular. In Sociology, Capitalism, Critique, Klaus Dorre, Stephan Lessenich, and Hartmut Rosa bring the critique of capitalism back to the top of the agenda, placing it at the heart of sociology.
