Why do growing numbers of people in Europe believe that the social consequences of the neoliberal counterrevolution and globalization can be addressed with nationalist concepts? Why do even some leftists submit to these tendencies? What happened to the traditions of international solidarity and solidarity with the weakest, regardless of their nationality?
The transform! yearbook 2019 examines current challenges for the left forces in several European countries, explores the lessons of super-majority strikes and other recent organizing experiences, and looks at the alternatives opened up in 1968–69 in the West as well as the countries of state socialism with their history of attempts at renewing Marxist theory and council democracy.
With contributions from Luciana Castellina, Bernd Riexinger, Jane McAlevey, Alexandros Kioupkiolis, Frigga Haug, Klaus Busch, Judith Dellheim, Erhard Crome, Alda Sousa, Jon Trickett, and many more.
The yearbook is published by transform! europe. The left-wing thinktank also serves as the political foundation for the Party of the European Left, uniting 34 organizations from 22 countries including the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung.
