THE CRISIS AND THE LEFT: SOCIALIST REGISTER 2012 THE CRISIS AND THE LEFT: SOCIALIST REGISTER 2012
Edited By Leo Panitch, Greg Albo and Vivek Chibber

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

It extends regional coverage of the crisis, with essays on the United States, Latin America, China, Eastern Europe, Ireland, and the Middle East.
The volume also opens up a debate on possible strategies for the Left, which it will continue in the forthcoming volume in 2013 on socialist strategy for the 21st century.

'The high standard we have grown to expect is maintained ... (it) helps us to understand events as they unfold and hopefully, will help guide our future actions.' Spokesman.

'The Socialist Register 2012 provides a fascinating and very informative series of pieces on diverse aspects of the current crisis. Although occasionally eclectic and contradictory, it is thought-provoking and insightful throughout.' Marx and Philosophy Review of Books
