Europe in Revolt: Mapping the New European Left by Bhaskar Sunkara
English | July 19, 2016 | ISBN: 1608465934 | 216 Pages | PDF | 4.99 MB

In Greece, Ireland, Portugal, and Spain the debt crisis that began with the 2008 global recession helped trigger severe austerity measures—which only worsened economic conditions.

In response, something happened that few outsiders expected: A massive wave of resistance erupted across Europe. With mainstream parties largely discredited by their support of austerity measures, room opened for radicals to offer a left-wing alternative.

Europe in Revolt examines the key parties and figures behind this insurgency, with insider coverage of the roots of the social crisis—and the radicals seeking to reverse it—in Cyprus, England, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and Sweden.
