Book launch: Revolutionary Rehearsals in the Neoliberal Age

19 September 2021 at 4:00 pm6:00 pm

Join in this launch event for Revolutionary Rehearsals in the Neoliberal Age. The event is organised by rs21 and sponsored by the publisher, Haymarket Books.
The volume is edited by Colin Barker, Gareth Dale, and Neil Davidson and looks at what we can learn from revolutionary situations that have occurred in the neoliberal era. It explores a series of upheavals – in Eastern Europe, South Africa, Indonesia, Argentina, Bolivia, Venezuela, sub-Saharan Africa (including Congo, Zimbabwe, Burkina Faso) and Egypt – and assesses the prospects of socialist revolution in our age of ‘capitalist realism.’
We will hear from two contributors to the book, Gareth Dale and Mike Gonzalez, and Raquel Varela and Max Stein will respond with their reflections on it and on the questions it raises.
The meeting will be chaired by Smina Akhtar. There will be time for questions, discussion and debate.
