The period since the late 1970s has seen the global ascendency of a neo-liberal political and economic order. This has pushed back the old left in significant ways, and although important new forms of resistance have emerged these have been transient or partial in their effectiveness. The chapter argues that nevertheless the possibility, indeed necessity, remains of a political project of human emancipation.
