Four years on from the start of the crisis, there is no recovery in sight. The Cameron-Clegg government may claim that Britain is on the mend, but for the 99% of us the prospect for years to come is falling real incomes and insecurity. Meanwhile the eurozone crisis rumbles on, with no strategy except deep austerity for countries like Italy and Spain, let alone Greece and Portugal.

This new book analyses the crisis in different regions and is a contribution to the debates about alternatives. In addition to a general analysis of the crisis including how it affects women, contributions cover Britain, the European Union, there are also contributions on the eco-socialist alternatives to capitalism.
