Requirements: .ePUB reader, 679 KB
Overview: In Greece, Ireland, Portugal, and Spain the debt crisis that began with the 2008 global recession helped trigger severe austerity measures-which only worsened economic conditions.
In response, something happened that few outsiders expected: A massive wave of resistance erupted across Europe. With mainstream parties largely discredited by their support of austerity measures, room opened for radicals to offer a left-wing alternative.
Europe in Revolt examines the key parties and figures behind this insurgency, with insider coverage of the roots of the social crisis-and the radicals seeking to reverse it-in Cyprus, England, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and Sweden.
