Dr. Thomas Bonfiglio, Professor of Literature and Linguistics and the William Judson Gaines Chair in Modern Foreign Languages, discusses his new book, The Psychopathology of American Capitalism, published recently by Palgrave Macmillan. The book synthesizes psychoanalytic and Marxist techniques in order to account for the suppression of leftist politics in America, the protectionist discourses of anomalous American capitalism, and the rise of neoliberalism.
