Product description


“[Heath and Potter] are the genuine article: intellectual martyrs fighting the good fight.” (Rex Murphy)

“This is controversial stuff. . . . A thought-provoking look at the effectiveness of ‘sticking it to the Man’ . . . Recommended reading for anyone with an interest in social justice and the evolution of economics.” (Calgary Herald)

“An incisive and witty indictment of consumer trends.” (BusinessWeek)

“The counterculture is not just a failure, but a harmful illusion.” (The Globe and Mail)

“A brave book.” (The Guardian (UK))

“Joseph Heath and Andrew Potter argue convincingly--and just snidely enough--that while the counterculture purports to be a force against capitalism, it’s more like oxygen feeding the fires of consumption.” (Eye Weekly)

“A compelling read, proposing ways for us serfs to combat the brandlords.” (Focus)

“I thoroughly recommend The Rebel Sell.” (Grayson Perry, Winner of the Turner Prize and Author of The Descent of Man)
