Our Europe, Not Theirs

by Julian Priestley and Glyn Ford (Editors) - £13.99  Lawrence and Wishart Ltd (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781910448793 | ISBN 10: 1910448796

The contributors to this book suggest a radical agenda for change and reform in Europe. They argue that the UK left should work with other progressives within the EU to create a programme for economic, social and ecological renewal for Europe in the world.
 
In a new introductory chapter, the editors argue that the success of the left in Britain depends on successfully working with its European counterparts to shift the political balance in the EU. A no vote in the referendum would be disastrous both for the left and the country as a whole.
 
Elsewhere contributors discuss austerity’s throttling of Europe’s growth prospects; how to respond to the return of poverty and rampant inequalities; and how to challenge unaccountable corporate power. They also engage critically with Europe’s environmental policies; its short-sighted immigration management; and its sacrifice of fair trade in the name of an ideological commitment to unbridled globalisation.
