Product Description
 
There are no easy answers to the general election disaster of 2019, only urgent questions. Grace Blakeley introduces a collective stock-taking by leading voices on the British left.
In Futures of Socialism, Novara editor Ash Sarkar and Unite's Andrew Murray debate where Labour went wrong, James Butler (also of Novara) evaluates Johnson's new-look Conservatives, and Cat Hobbs and James Meadway grapple with public ownership and the financialisation of the UK economy. Plus despatches from the Labour heartlands, Owen Hatherley on the politics of nostalgia, Keir Milburn and Lola Seaton on 'generation left', Amelia Horgan and Chris Saltmarsh on feminism and the climate crisis, and Momentum co-founder James Schneider on the prospects for parliamentary socialism.There are no easy answers to the general election disaster of 2019, only urgent questions.
