The contributors consider where the left is situated now, how the theoretical structures of postmodernism can be used to reassess that position, and suggest ways of forecasting the future. Wide-ranging and polemical, Altered States rethinks the tenets of socialism, taking into account the globalisation of the media, diversity and identity and the new city-states, in a collection which both centres current debate and takes the discussion forward, laying a ground plan for a new and radical democracy.
