The Left Alternative
A Verso book
A manifesto that engages a vital question of our time: where should the Left go from here?
A manifesto that engages a vital question of our time: Where should the Left go from here? Confronting the major debates in the world today — about national alternatives and alternative globalizations — Unger shows that there is a set of initiatives that we can begin to develop with the materials at hand. Fully updated with a new preface, The Left Alternative equips the Left with the ideas that it needs to overthrow the dictatorship of no alternatives.
