Halloween may have passed, but zombie imagery is ubiquitous. In the new book Catastrophism, David McNally links the powerful cultural resonance of zombies to the deadening experience of wage labor and other everyday castastrophes under capitalism. Sasha Lilley, in her contribution to the volume, describes two versions of left-wing catastrophism and why we should steer clear of both.
