    y Exit Capitalism : Literary Culture, Theory and Post-Secular Modernity Simon During , London New York (City) : Routledge Taylor & Francis Group , 2010 Z1895333 2010 multi chapter work criticism 'Exit Capitalism explores a new path for cultural studies and re-examines key moments of British cultural and literary history. Simon During argues that the long and liberating journey towards democratic state capitalism has led to an unhappy dead-end from which there is no imaginable exit. In this context, what do the humanities look like? What's alive and what's dead in the culture and its heritage? It becomes clear that the contemporary world order remains imperfect not just because it is unjust but because it cannot meet ethical standards produced in a past that still knew genuine hope. Simon During emphasises the need to rethink the position of Christianity and religion in the past, and at a more concrete level, also analyses how the decline of the socialist ideal and the emergence of endgame capitalism helped to produce both modern theory and cultural studies as academic fields.'
