My Battle With Europe's Deep Establishment
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.
Jan Olsson, 12 augusti 2017
Visar hur EU - allra mest Merkel och Schäuble - med pengar som vapen struntar i demokrati och rättvisa för att knäcka ett fattigt land i Europa. Yanis Varoufakis var finansminister och skildrar det nutida grekiska dramat inifrån.

"Varoufakis has written one of the greatest political memoirs of all time [and] one of the most accurate and detailed descriptions of modern power ever written" * Guardian * "An important, terrifying must-read. In particular, it anatomises the way in which EU leaders operate with a brutal clarity ... shocking and ultimately tragic ... He gets to the heart of their failure more acutely than anyone ... Varoufakis has the greatest political virtues of all - courage and honesty" * The Times * "A tremendously indiscreet account ... drawing upon his own audio recordings and diaries of top-level meetings. It is deeply personal and very well written" * Financial Times * "The most jaw-dropping segments are the accounts of phone calls and closed-door meetings - often verbatim, courtesy of his secret recordings - between ministers and technocrats ... We see duplicity and cynicism ruling supreme .. A convincing critique ... Our own government should take note" * Daily Telegraph * "This is a superbly written account of the struggle to alleviate the austerity imposed upon the Greek people by the eurozone. Greece, argues Varoufakis, has been put in a debtors' prison and robbed of autonomy and dignity for the indefinite future. Critics would argue that he failed as finance minister in 2015 because he was insufficiently politic. More plausibly, he could never have succeeded, such were the vested interests arrayed against him. This outcome was - and is - a tragedy, because he was - and is - right. The bulk of Greek debt should indeed be cancelled outright. Read and weep" -- Martin Wolf, Financial Times Summer Reads
