Monsters of the Market
Zombies, Vampires and Global CapitalismBook - 2012
Monsters of the Market investigates the rise of capitalism through the prism of the body-panics it arouses. Drawing on folklore, literature and popular culture, the book links tales of monstrosity from early-modern England, including Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, to a spate of recent vampire and zombie fables from sub-Saharan Africa and it connects these to Marx's persistent use of monster-metaphors in his descriptions of capitalism.
