9780745333809: Crucible of Resistance: Greece, the Eurozone and the World Economic Crisis

Syriza’s victory in the 2015 Greek general election has shaken the foundations of the Western political establishment and has given new hope to the millions suffering the austerity measures imposed by the European Troika. Many people are discussing how this has happened and what it is about Greece that has created such a centre of radicalism?

Written by Deputy Finance Minister and chief economics spokesman for Syriza Euclid Tsakalotos and economist Christos Laskos, Crucible of Resistance argues that Greece’s exceptionalism is largely a myth. The blame game that has been played by the EU powers is an ideological tool used to shift attention from the realities of both European and global capitalist economic order.

By alienating an entire nation of people, the Troika has revealed the internal contradictions of the modern neoliberal establishment, as well as the inadequacies of the earlier social-democratic Keynesian regime. Tsakalotos and Laskos suggest that there is very little that differentiates Greece from other countries struggling under austerity, and that parties such as Syriza could usher in a new, democratic and socialist era across the continent.

About the Author:

Euclid Tsakalotos is Deputy Finance Minister and chief economics spokesman for Syriza. He is also Professor of Economics at the University of Athens.

Christos Laskos is an economist, teacher and co-author, with Euclid Tsakalotos, of 22 Myths about the Greek Crisis (2013). He is a member of the political secretariat of Syriza.

Review:

"A book that gives us a clear account of how Greece and the eurozone got into such a mess. What is made clear is that the crisis is not only economic, but also one of growing regional and social inequalities and the retreat of democracy. More important still, the authors bring to the fore what the emerging radical Left in Greece and elsewhere can do to get us out of the crisis." (Alexis Tsipras, leader of Syriza and Prime Minister of Greece)

"The future of democracy in Greece is a matter for all of us in Europe. Laskos and Tsakalotos take us behind the headlines about 'bailouts' and 'crisis' and share with us both the challenges and the alternatives which Greeks are creating as they resist: from networks of solidarity to a new kind of political party with a strongly European perspective. Essential reading in the decisive months ahead." (Hilary Wainwright, Co-editor of Red Pepper, author of Reclaim the State: Experiments in Popular Demo)

"This book could not be timelier. The portrayal of Greece as a 'special case' is a symptom of Europe's continued denial that there is something rotten in its own foundations. This book is a clarion warning that the strangling of Greece is symptomatic of the fragmentation of a Europe based on a particular neoliberal settlement, which is now in its death throes. When Europe recognises that Greece is no special case, it will have a chance of preventing its own descent to a postmodern 1930s." (Yanis Varoufakis, author of The Global Minotaur)

"With a methodological approach that moves us away from a purely national explanation of the crisis and its response, and with a continually rich body of empirical detail throughout, this volume is simply a must-read for those who want to truly understand how we got here, and what is to be done in pursuing a more progressive response than currently dominates the political landscape." (Jamie Jordan Political Studies Review)
