Socialist Register 2012: The Crisis and the Left.

Socialist Register
October 2011

This year’s Socialist Register continues its coverage of the economic crisis. It deepens the analysis with essays on:

• the global roots of the crisis;
• the place of the city as a site of capital accumulation and resistance;
• the dismantling of the public sector;
• the fraudulence of neoliberal 'environmentalism';
• the intensification of global austerity.

The full table of contents and a link to download the preface are accessible at the bottom of this page.
