We live in the twilight of neoliberalism: the ruling classes can no longer rule as before, and ordinary people are no longer willing to be ruled in the old way. Pursued by global elites since the 1970s, neoliberalism is defined by dispossession and ever-increasing inequality. The refusal to continue to be ruled like this - "ya basta!" - appears in an arc of resistance stretching from rural India to the cities of the global North. From this network of movements, new visions are emerging of a future beyond neoliberalism.

Once of central importance to the left historians and activists alike, the concept of the “bourgeois revolution” has recently come in for sustained criticism from both Marxists and conservatives. In this comprehensive rejoinder, Neil Davidson seeks to answer the question. How revolutionary were the bourgeois revolutions? by systematically examining the approach taken by a wide range of thinkers to explain their causes, outcomes, and content across the historical period from the sixteenth-century Reformation to twentieth-century decolonization.

Imperialism as we knew it may be no more, but Empire is alive and well. Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri contend that the new political order of globalization should be seen in line with our historical understanding of Empire as a universal order that accepts no boundaries or limits. Their book shows how this emerging Empire is fundamentally different from the imperialism of European dominance and capitalist expansion in previous eras. Rather, today’s global Empire draws on elements of U.S.

Manabendranath Roy (1887-1954) the founder of the Indian Communist Party in exile, is undoubtedly, India's foremost revolutionary theorist. His life was an unending quest for freedom - first from the colonial yoke, then under the influence of Marxixm, 'wage slavery', and in his last years, from anything that stunts the immense potential of the individual and prevents him from being a free agent in history. A citizen of the world, he took active part in the emancipatory struggles in India, Mexico, revolutionary Russia and China during their crucial years.

This book argues that the Cuban Revolution warrants a closer look as a model of socialist human development. A re-reading of the Cuban Revolution from this angle engages unresolved issues in the theory of socialist humanism and the notion of human development popularized by the United Nations Development Programme (i.e., predicted on capitalism). UNDP economists and other agencies of international cooperation for development give a human face to a capitalist development process that is anything but humane.
