Using a discourse perspective, this work brings together the many fractious strains in the left, including social democracy, anarchism, communism and market socialism, and discusses them in terms of their relationships with each other. Not only does the study disentangle the left from liberal capitalism and progressive movements--such as those against racism and inequality--it sees the current left as intertwined with its history and its visions of the future."@en ;
