The summer and extended reading holidays are almost over, and we are now looking forward to autumn, which we hope will also provide many opportunities to read the interesting publications we have recently put out.
This newsletter provides an overview of the recent publications edited or supported by transform! europe (since April 2022).
Reputed authors and academics have covered a wide range of socio-political topics, including the ongoing corona crisis and its implications on working conditions (especially for women workers); strategic questions for the radical left in Europe, and economic, political, and ideological aspects of peripherality within the European Union; and border externalisation policies in the Balkans.
In collaboration with the Nicos Poulantzas Institute, two volumes of Left Theory for the 21st century have been published. Namely, Thinking Left Governmentality: The SYRIZA Experience 2015-2019, an analysis by Greek and international left intellectuals to frame Syriza's experience in government facing the Troika and Living in Dark Times, which reflects on the darker side of our times and the negativity that a radical political strategy must address, manage, and transform.
Finally, we are very proud to present transform! europe´s 2022 yearbook, Left Strategies in the Covid Pandemic and Its Aftermath which looks at how left politics has been challenged by the Covid pandemic and asks what a programme of left demands for pandemic research, prevention, and treatment might look like.
Many of these publications are available in full at no charge on our website and/or can be purchased in print.
We wish you an enjoyable and interesting read,
Štefica Gazibara, web editor, transform! europe
