Capitalism, Socialism, their Alternatives and Critiques

Capitalism and Socialism have always been intertwined with the economic modes of production and the politics that founds it.  They have many proponents and many critics.  There are also those who critique both, even if are found to be in support of either.  There are also alternatives to both of them.  As for the basics, capitalism is means profit going more to owners of means of production.  Socialism means a society in transition to the next stage of political and economic production, with communism being the following stage.  Very quickly they became at war with capitalism usually representing private ownership, while socialism (and communism) representing government ownership.  A false dichotomy that the following list of books either highlights the benefits of their own views, critiques another, or shows a different path.  

Caveat: Just because a book and author support or critique a particular view, that does not mean that they accept it as is.  Some do.  Usually, those who support also show many critiques, and vice versa.
