The problem of rent is at the root of vital social concerns in the 21st century, ranging from the climate emergency and spiralling inequality to the repercussions of the global economic crises. But while many of us may be familiar with rent (especially paying it), how should we really understand it? Examining both concrete contexts and complex concepts, in this book Joe Collins provides a comprehensive but concise survey of the theories and debates over rent and rentier capitalism.
