Capitalism and its Discontents presents a series of interpretative essays on a number of key modern and contemporary Latin American novels and films. The overarching theme in the essays is the relation between such textual materials and their regional contexts.


'Despite the seriousness of his concerns, Kraniauskas’s approach to his many critical and theoretical referents is refreshingly convivial. He has no interest in deconstructing
or criticizing his intellectual interlocutors, preferring to ‘productively “hybridize” their work’. As a result, his readings are matched in their intellectual virtuosity by curiosity, creativity, and generosity of spirit, which confirm Kraniauskas as a consistently brilliant philosopher of Latin American culture.'
