About this book

This edited volume explores the context in which the Spanish party Podemos operates as both an agent and product of political cycles. It provides an account of the party’s genealogy, ideological environment and relation to other political initiatives in Latin America and Western Europe. The contributors address the multiples dynamics generated by Podemos as a new party developed out of the economic crisis, the structural crisis concerning social democracy and the incarnation of the welfare state project, and, more generally, out of the Left. It will appeal to upper-level students and scholars interested in Spanish politics, history, culture and sociology.

Reviews

“This is arguably the first book addressed to an international audience that advances a comprehensive account of Podemos’ trajectory together with a rigorous analysis of its political discourse. In addition, the Podemos project is situated within similar political initiatives in Latin America and other European countries. Offering an impressive compilation of original research by a dynamic generation of scholars, this truly illuminating volume will undoubtedly set the standard for future research on this challenging phenomenon.” (Professor Yannis Stavrakakis, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece)

“The neoliberal crisis has produced, among others, a political earthquake, with the disruption of well-established party system. While the social-democratic parties have been most affected all over Europe, a Left has emerged beyond Social Democracy. Addressing the case of Podemos with rich empirical data and original theoretical reflections, this very valuable collection contributes to our understanding of the potential for a resurgence of the Left.” (Professor Donatella della Porta, European University Institute, Italy)
