Philosophy Football are pleased to offer the new book Syriza: Inside the Labyrinth at £3 off, just £9.99 and exclusively signed by the author. For all of 2015 the world’s eyes have been on Greece. The Syriza government elected in January under the leadership of Alexis Tspiras threatened to shake up the European economic status quo with its radical, anti-austerity politics. When Syriza’s challenge to the EU was put to the Greek people in a referendum the party and its allies won a stunning 61% vote in support of Oxi, No. And then, a few days later, the Greek government under immense pressure from the EU was forced into a climbdown. In a second General Election Syriza triumphed and now has a mandate to continue its challenge to Euro-austerity. An extraordinary nine months in the life of a nation and one thing is certain, the story of Greek resistance is not over yet and will continue to dominate European politics for some considerable time. Kevin Ovenden has written a thrilling account of the background to Syriza’s rise to become the most important party of the European radical Left, its trials and tribulations in office and the vision Syriza continues to project that another Europe is not only necessary, but possible.
Syriza: Inside the Labyrinth is a must-read for all those interested in the prospects for a radical Left, at home and abroad. Philosophy Football is immensely proud that in an act of practical solidarity we have helped fund Kevin’s unrivalled reportage from Athens in 2015, provided free for radical media across the world. Kevin’s book is the product of his eyewitness account of Greece’s year of change. This superb book is published by Pluto Press in association with the newly revived Left Book Club.
