Elmar Altvater was a political scientist who, from the late 1960s until his death on 1 May 2018, worked in Germany and many countries both in Europe and other parts of the world as a university professor and as a concerned political intellectual, contributing an extensive range of lectures, research, writings and public interventions. Trained in the writings of a critical political economy, his main interest was directed to developing a fruitful analysis of our future-threatening economic system.
