A people's history of the Balkans

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It's not just Greece: since the 2007 crisis, rebellions, protests, and returns to anti-capitalist politics have been emerging across the Balkan peninsula as the people confront both Europe's austerity agenda and the toxic legacies of occupation and ethnic sectarianism. This talk will contextualize the current struggles by telling the story of the Balkans from Ottoman Empire to the present, and how, from the bottom up, workers and peasants across the peninsula fought subjugation and exploitation.

Recommended Books Available in the Haymarket Room:
The War Correspondence of Leon Trotsky: The Balkan Wars 1912-13 by Trotsky
Don't Mourn, Balkanize!: Essays After Yugoslavia by Andrej Grubacic
The Balkans: Nationalism, War, and the Great Powers, 1804-2011 by Misha Glenny
