Reviews

  • "If you ever doubt what is at stake in Europe, read Varoufakis’s account"

    Guardian
  • "An outstanding economist and political analyst. His remarkable talents are fully on display in his recent study of Europe’s crisis, a most revealing and perceptive analysis of the development of the global economy in the past half century and their grim consequences now threatening Western societies"

    Noam Chomsky
  • "An absolutely splendid book… What Yanis really shows is that the European project had a democratic deficit from the origin and design… The Thucydides of our time"

    Jeffrey Sachs
  • "One of my few heroes...his achievements are incredibly important…to save what is worth fighting for in Europe…Yanis tried to do the right thing – to remain within the EU and disturb from within. That is why he was such a threat…wonderfully written, complex, a book which is set to provoke our rage…to make us think, and that’s what we need today. As long as people like Yanis are around, there still is hope"

    Slavoj Zizek
  • "A very, very clever person, and in the basic argument about what’s been going on in Europe I think he’s right"

    Martin Wolf
  • "A devastating account"

    Andrew Marr
  • "A scholar, writer, philosopher of clarity, insight, generosity and engaging prose, not to mention integrity and courage"

    James Galbraith
  • "A brilliant economist"

    Bloomberg
  • "Few finance ministers have such a talent for economics as Yanis Varoufakis"
