Meanwhile I have been re-reading Holloway's Crack Capitalism and thought some passages worth quoting:
It is not the state that creates the social synthesis that surrounds us, although it often presents itself as doing so... The real force of cohesion stands behind the state: it is the movement of money... More precisely, the social synthesis is established through that which is expressed in money: value.
Value is what holds society together under capitalism... Capitalism is composed of a huge number of independent units which produce commodities that they sell on the market... Value (manifested in money) constitutes the social synthesis in capitalist society, that which holds together the many different, uncoordinated activities... the state is dependent on money and can do little to influence its movement.
... Money is the fine spider's web that holds us entrapped.

Also, note the short review of our book by Roger Fletcher in the Morning Star, 'the only English-language socialist daily newspaper published in the world' and 'the only newspaper in Britain owned by its readers'. The Morning Star started out as the Daily Worker issued by the Communist Party of Great Britain.
