    Book synopsis: This book takes Greece as a starting point, since this country has become so evident in the "test laboratory" for the relentless twist of the neoliberal project: An unprecedented transfer of resources from the poor to the rich and from public to private, protected in the "unavoidable" rescue the banking and debt crisis. But the onslaught suffering today Greece (massive privatizations, progressive elimination of all welfare approach, atoning use of the immigrant population, radicalization of insecurity and inequality ...) are a threat to Europe and increasingly evident reality and extensive in our country. This book, therefore, takes Greece only as a starting point, so think about the future of Europe. So we've had with reflections, quite recent, of some of the most influential thinkers of the continent, critical and radical thought in this. Philosophers, sociologists, economists, urban planners, policy experts and legal ... theory examine issues such as widespread transition from democracy to post-democracy; the new state capitalism and methods governmentality renewed through debt; the perplexities of so-called "European people" and dislocation of the concept of sovereignty; the widespread prevalence of currency war and strategies of critical reappropriation of the coin; the alleged diseases banking and infinitely deeper deterioration afflicting the system; impotence of politicians and the need to transform our own sense of helplessness through a real policy; various forms of citizen resistance and essential formation of struggles and insurrections of unprecedented nature ... We believe that Greece is merely the symptom of a global crisis, and that this volume, based on the clarity of the authors and their proposals, is a fundamental reference in contemporary political and economic debate.
