In Syriza: Inside the Labyrinth, the first book to be published as part of the relaunched Left Book Club, Kevin Ovenden gives an on-the-ground account of Syriza’s rise to power following the party’s election victory in Greece in January 2015. By tracing the heavy compromises and strategic decisions made by the party during its defining first six months in office, Ovenden’s book not only captures the complexity of recent Greek politics, but also speaks to the question of whether radical change can be mobilised on both the streets and through the ballot box, writes Nicolas Schneider.
