Descrizione prodotto


This book could not be more timely. The portrayal of Greece as a ‘special case’ is a symptom of Europe’s continued denial that there is something rotten in its own foundations. This book is a clarion warning that the strangling of Greece is symptomatic of the fragmentation of a Europe based on a particular neoliberal settlement, which is now in its death throes. When Europe recognises that Greece is no special case, it will have a chance of preventing its own descent to a postmodern 1930s. (Yanis Varoufakis, Professor of Economics, University of Athens and Visiting Professor, Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, University of Texas; author of The Global Minotaur: America, Europe and the Future of the Global Economy)

This book gives us a clear account of how Greece and the eurozone got into such a mess. It makes clear that the crisis is not only economic, but also one of growing regional and social inequalities and the retreat of democracy. More important still, the authors bring to the fore what the emerging radical left in Greece and elsewhere can do to get us out of the crisis. (Alexis Tsipras, head of Syriza (Coalition of the Radical Left) and Leader of the Opposition in the Greek parliament)

The future of democracy in Greece is a matter for all of us in Europe. Laskos and Tsakalotos take us behind the headlines about 'bailouts' and 'crisis' and share with us both the challenges and the alternatives which Greeks are creating as they resist: from networks of solidarity to a new kind of political party with a strongly European perspective. Essential reading in the decisive months ahead. (Hilary Wainwright, Co-editor of Red Pepper, author of Reclaim the State: Experiments in Popular Democracy)

Superb... With a methodological approach that moves us away from a purely national explanation of the crisis and its response, and with a continually rich body of empirical detail throughout, this volume is simply a must-read for those who want to truly understand how we got here, and what is to be done in pursuing a more progressive response than currently dominates the political landscape. (Jamie Jordan, Political Studies Review)


Syriza’s victory in the recent Greek general election has shaken the foundations of the Western political establishment and has given new hope to the millions suffering the austerity measures imposed by the European Troika. Many people are discussing how this has happened and what it is about Greece that has created such a centre of radicalism?

Written by Finance Minister and chief economics spokesman for Syriza Euclid Tsakalotos and economist Christos Laskos, Crucible of Resistance argues that Greece’s exceptionalism is largely a myth. The blame game that has been played by the EU powers is an ideological tool used to shift attention from the realities of both European and global capitalist economic order.

By alienating an entire nation of people, the Troika has revealed the internal contradictions of the modern neoliberal establishment, as well as the inadequacies of the earlier social-democratic Keynesian regime. Tsakalotos and Laskos suggest that there is very little that differentiates Greece from other countries struggling under austerity, and that parties such as Syriza could usher in a new, democratic and socialist era across the continent.

4.0 su 5 stelle Prophetic 28 luglio 2015

Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Well documented and referenced reads almost like a scenario of current events. I am sure Tsakotos as the current financings minister of Greece will provide us with an accurate account in the next edition.
4.0 su 5 stelle A needed perspective 7 febbraio 2016
Di John Nordin - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
If you suspect that mass media are not really telling you what is going on with the Eurozone situation or tired of people just assuming that debt reduction is the most important thing to do in a recession check out this book. Written by people close to SYRZIA (and with an endorsement from the current Greek prime minister), this book gives you a better analysis of neoliberalism and its failures as it impacted the Greek situation. It is certainly critical of the decades-long failure of Greek politicians to turn away from clientalism and promoting elites at the expense of ordinary people. But it critically dissects how European leaders aimed to protect German banks and the financial health of their own elites at the expense of those same ordinary Greeks.

Greece needs reform, but the 'reform' Europe is pushing will just make things worse. This book shows how a austerity-based approach caused a 25% shrinkage of the Greek economy and how PASOK and New Democracy failed to develop a coherent response.

It does use terminology common to the European left which can be puzzling to an American reader at times. However, careful reading will open up new perspectives not allowed by the mass media. Contains a very extensive bibliography to academic literature on the financial crisis that is a valuable starting point for additional reading.
