Hi,

What is the subject of to be published this week ? It doesn't have a subject. It's a descriptive phrase. It describes the preceding noun or noun phrase.

Please explain me the structure of to be published this week ?

I see to be published this week as an adjectival phrase describing 'The New Capitalist'. Consider some simpler examples.

eg I saw a flower to pick. I bought a chicken to cook. This is the room to be painted.

Best wishes, Clive
