Endorsement: "Resistance in an Age of Austerity"

I was recently asked to read and write an endorsement for Owen Worth's Resistance in an Age of Austerity which is going to be published by Zed Books early next year. It's a really interesting book which examines the rise of conservative and religious social movements in response to the problems of (neoliberal) globalization, as well as the (apparent) failure of left-wing social movements to offer alternatives in light of the ongoing global financial crisis.What I said:
"Neoliberalism is rising, phoenix-like from the ashes of the financial crisis, while the left flounders. By showing how the crisis has, in fact, been hijacked by conservative and religious movements from around the world, this incredibly timely and insightful book provides an important answer to why no left alternative has emerged. A must for anyone interested in resisting neoliberalism".
Well worth a read when it comes out - no pun intended!
