Reactions to Imperialism and Neoliberalism
Edited by Leo Panitch and Colin Leys

What are the forces at work in opposition to the American Empire? Are such forces, in the Islamic World and in Latin America, reactionary or progressive?

What are the distinguishing features of neoliberalism today? What are its emerging contradictions?

This volume surveys the key flashpoints of resistance today. The main arena of resistance to imperialism is the Middle East. Six essays explore the ambivalent nature of Islamic anti-imperialism, and the West's crucial role in making it so significant, as well as the different forms it takes as a political creed; and they provide particular insight into the relationship between religion and politics today in Iraq, Palestine and Turkey. Resistance to neoliberalism has been seen most clearly in the 'pink tide' in Latin America. Seven essays evaluate the potential - or lack of it - for a 21st century socialism across the region, and especially in Venezuela, Bolivia, Mexico, and Argentina; while an interview with João-Pedro Stédile, leader of Brazil's Landless People's Movement, provides a unique perspective on class struggles in that country. Three further essays look at recent reactions to neoliberalism and imperialism elsewhere - in Eastern Europe, in France, and in the heart of empire, the United States itself. The volume concludes with a symposium: three leading left economists analyse neoliberalism as a global regime of social and political control, and critically examine the left's response it.

COMING TO TERMS WITH NATURE COMING TO TERMS WITH NATURE
Socialist Register 2007
Edited by Leo Panitch and Colin Leys
with Barbara Harriss-White, Elmar Altvater and Grego Albo

Can capitalism come to terms with the environment? Can market forces and technology overcome the 'limits to growth' and yet preserve the biosphere? What is the nature of oil politics today? Can capitalism do without nuclear power, or make it safe? What is the significance of the impasse over the Kyoto protocol?

How far has socialist thought developed to help us understand the environmental dilemma? Has it even begun to provide answers to it? Does socialist internationalism imply accelerated growth in the 'south'? If so, what are the possibilities for redefining standards of living for more limited consumption in the North?

How can class and environmental politics be brought together? What are the shortcomings of Green parties and 'green commerce'? What are viable Eco-Socialist strategies, and how can they marry democracy with the planning needed to come to terms with nature?

"few <Actinic:Variable Name = 'writers'/> offer serious strategies for limiting further global warming. One exception is the latest edition of the annual journal Socialist Register. It contains a series of explicitly socialist attempts to grapple with the issues of climate change and the environment." International Socialism

TELLING THE TRUTH TELLING THE TRUTH
Socialist Register 2006

Edited by Leo Panitch and Colin Leys

How does power shape ideas and ideologies today? Who controls the information on which public discussion rests? How is power used to exclude critical thought in politics, the media, universities, state policy-making? Has neo-liberal globalisation introduced a new era of state duplicity, corporate manipulation of truth and intellectual conformity? Are we entering a new age of unreason?
The Socialist Register 2006 examines contemporary public debate and policy-making, scientific and social scientific research, statistics, the media, the business 'community', the World Bank, humanitarian 'aid', the role of the theatre. What standards of intellectual integrity exist today? After postmodernism, is it still possible for truth to prevail over half-truths and lies?

'Socialist Register is required reading on its publication every year. This volume continues that tradition' Variant

THE EMPIRE RELOADED THE EMPIRE RELOADED
Socialist Register 2005

Edited by Leo Panitch & Colin Leys

How does the new American empire work? Who runs it? How stable is it?

What is the new American Empire's impact throughout the world?

What is its influence on gender relations? On the media? On popular culture?

"We must mobilise support for movements with positive features, even if we have serious criticisms. In our endeavours, however, we need facts and arguments. In this volume of Socialist Register there is a vast amount of information ready to be used". The Spokesman

"provocative and stimulating" Labour Research.

"The essays in this year's Socialist Register leave us in no doubt that American and EU imperialisms still exist. But vulgar leftist commonplaces about how they operate will take a knock from a close reading of some of the more challenging texts." Chartist

"Both Volumes [2004 and 2005] offer an incomparable guide to the new imperialism and their contradictions" www.fil.com.mx/pres_lib/fichas_05/socia_clac.htm

THE NEW IMPERIAL CHALLENGE THE NEW IMPERIAL CHALLENGE
Socialist Register 2004

Edited by Leo Panitch & Colin Leys

What does imperialism mean in the new century?
Do we need new concepts to understand it?
Who benefits, who suffers? Where? Why?

"As Rosa Luxemburg observed, it is 'often hard to determine, within the tangle of violence and contests for power, the stern laws of economic process.' This is what Panitch, Gindin, Harvey, Gowan, and their colleagues on the Marxist left are trying to do, along with a few non-Marxist mavericks like Todd. For this, whatever our other differences, the rest of us owe them much gratitude" George Scialabba, Dissent, Spring 2004

WORKING CLASSES, GLOBAL REALITIES WORKING CLASSES, GLOBAL REALITIES
Socialist Register 2001

Edited by Leo Panitch & Colin Leys

The Socialist Register 2001 looks at class realities and the lives of workers in the new century.
Twenty original and wide-ranging essays lay the grounds for a much-needed revival of class analysis, exploring such themes as the making of a 'cybertariat', the spread of unstable, casual, and contingent employment, the changes women have wrought in the working classes, the relationship between workers 'north' and 'south', the persistence of 'peasantries', the growing significance of migrant workers, and new strategies for change which can transcend the limits of old forms of class organization and politics.
Regionally-focused essays address the challenges faced by workers and labour movements in India, Iran, Russia, Brazil, Southern Africa and East Asia, as well as Europe and North America.
