"What's Left of the Left?"

"The generation of activists and thinkers who made up the New Left have recently spread out in very different intellectual directions; some of them joined forces with the New Labour project, while others supported intervention in Iraq. Was the war in Iraq, and before that NATO's interventions in the Balkans, a continuation of the universalist and democratic spirit of 1968, or an abandonment of its principles? Where can those principles find a home in a very different political landscape?"
