Description

The resurgence social movement in recent years has put the question of strategy back on the left’s agenda. This volume of the Socialist Register surveys some of the most explosive mobilizations around the world. But it also asks, what are the challenges, both political and intellectual, for the anti-capitalist left today?

Some of the issues it takes up:

**The crisis of vision in trade unions – can they still serve as a vehicle for working-class organization?
**The place of gender struggles in left movements today
The emergence of Greece as the epicenter for antineoliberal movements in Europe
**The condition of new anti-capitalist parties in Europe - A balance sheet of the Occupy Wall Street Movement
**The contradictions of progressive governments in South Africa and Bolivia
**The promise and pitfalls of ‘horizontalism’ in the new movements
**The mixed legacy of Leninism as a strategic vision

As the turn to austerity continues in the West, these are some of the questions that the left will have to confront as it mobilizes a fight-back. The next two volumes will take up the transformations in class structure and class organization that have occurred in the wake of the economic crisis.
