The ascendance of austerity policies and the protests they have generated have had a deep impact on the shape of contemporary politics. The stunning electoral successes of SYRIZA in Greece, Podemos in Spain and the Movimento 5 Stelle (M5S) in Italy, alongside the quest for a more radical left in countries such as the UK and the US, bear witness to a new wave of parties that draws inspiration and strength from social movements.

The rise of movement parties challenges simplistic expectations of a growing separation between institutional and contentious politics and the decline of the left. Their return demands attention as a way of understanding both contemporary socio–political dynamics and the fundamentals of political parties and representation.

Bridging social movement and party politics studies, within a broad concern with democratic theories, this volume presents new empirical evidence and conceptual insight into these topical socio–political phenomena, within a cross–national comparative perspective.

"Austerity policies in Europe have done little to ignite economic growth but have created a firestorm in politics. The volume′s expert analysis of the new anti–austerity social movements and political parties makes major theoretical contributions in movement dynamics, as well as illuminating current politics." – Jack A. Goldstone, Schar School of Policy and Government, George Mason University

"The relationship between parties and social movements has always been difficult. The recent domination of neoliberalism and austerity have changed that: a marriage of convenience has become a love affair. The future of the Left depends on the permanence and length of this relationship. This definitive study will become the standard reference in the academic literature and will help party members and militants to understand and strengthen links with each other. In this sense, the volume is a first – both as a scientific achievement and as a guide to action." – Costas Douzinas, University of London and Member for Pireas, Hellenic Parliament
