Book award for Derber

capitalism bookCapitalism: Should You Buy It? (Paradigm Publishers, 2014) co-written by Boston College Professor of Sociology Charles Derber and Yale Magrass (University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth) has been selected as an Outstanding Academic Title for 2014 by the editors of Choice magazine, an academic library review magazine that is considered the premier guideline for library acquisitions. The prestigious list, which reflects the best in scholarly titles reviewed by Choice, is announced every year in the magazine’s January issue. The list of Outstanding Academic Titles is selective: it contains only about ten percent of the some 7,000 works reviewed in Choice each year. Capitalism was recognized in the Economics category. Derber and Magrass’ book casts a critical eye towards capitalism and questions whether it can provide a society that promotes the well-being, indeed the survival, of humanity. Derber is the author of some 20 books, including Greed to Green, Corporation Nation, Morality Wars, People Before Profit, and many more.
