Product description


"What a rare and wonderful book! Douzinas reflects with searing honesty on the challenges facing left parties trying to govern and protect embattled nations in an age of financialization and globalization. Because he is one of the most perspicacious critical legal and political theorists of our time, he has also offered a brilliant set of political theoretical meditations. By turns ironic, tragic, caustic and moving, Syriza in Power is essential reading for serious leftists everywhere."
Wendy Brown, University of California, Berkeley

"While the Syriza government, elected in 2015 in Greece, was teaching the world a lesson of courage and fidelity, Costas Douzinas, its professor elect , was teaching a lesson of lucidity, intelligence and imagination. Above all, he makes plain that, in the darkest hour, history is not finished, because the resistance is rooted in the life and ideals of the people itself. Whether one entirely agrees or not with Douzinas’ left Euroscepticism that can save Europe , his politics of truth will prove immensely helpful."
Étienne Balibar, Kingston University

About the Author

Costas Douzinas is Professor of Law and Director of the Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities, University of London as well as the Syriza member of the Hellenic parliament for Piraeus.
