    One thought on “The Brexit Crisis: A Verso Report”

    1. 4.5 stars A really fantastic collection of essays from which I ve learnt a lot and been given plenty of food for thought The quality is consistently high throughout, across differing styles, approaches and emotions Everyone in Britain should be reading this right now, and it s currently free on Verso s site for writing of this standard, an offer not to be passed up it looks like it will be 99p in future, which would still be a steal I ve been enthusing to my friends about this little ebook since [...]

    2. A collection of essays about Britain leaving the EU but very little discussion about the Left s pro leave position The EU has been devastating for workers with its labor reforms and mandatory privatization of public services to further a neoliberal agenda From the best essay by Stathis Kouvelakis Destabilizing the European Union, shaking its legitimacy and leadership to the ground, is an opportunity not to be missed See for instance how Jean Luc Melenchon the leader of the French radical left wh [...]

    3. Mix of articles of varying interest, bits and pieces of new stuff Obviously limited by the limited time since the referendum, and the pace of events Found the final essay a letter to the British Left by Stathis Kouvelakis the most interesting and one of the best looks at the left response to Brexit that I ve seen.

    4. This is why Marx thought that political emancipation wasn t the whole of human emancipation and why the political state should abolish its separation from civil society via the radical transformation of the social relations that both levels organize and reproduce As Marx and Engels famously put it in the Communist Manifesto Since the proletariat must first of all acquire political supremacy, must rise to be the leading class of the nation, must constitute itself the nation, it is so far, itself [...]

    5. Surprisingly balanced set of essays on the various aspects of Brexit Some of the viewpoints on the EU have really got me thinking and made me uncertain of the future than before The outcome of the vote may still yield good results in the long run, but as we only have one timeline ahead of us it will be difficult to say how the alternatives would have worked out.Well worth the short amount of time it takes to read this, especially when it is free on the Verso Books website.
