IBNA- Persian translation of 'Another Now: Dispatches from an Alternative Present' (2020) by Greek economist and politician Yanis Varoufakis which is a notable addition to literature of social change has been published.
Eminent Slovanian philosopher Slavoj Žižek comments on this book and its author: "One of my few heroes. As long as people like Varoufakis are around, there still is hope." Rasoul Ghanbari has translated it into Persian. Afkar Publishing has released ‘Another Now’ in 222 pages and 500 copies.
In world-famous economist, Yanis Varoufakis, shows us what such a world would look like. Far from being a fantasy, he describes how it could have come about - and might yet. But would we really want it?
Varoufakis's boundary-breaking new book confounds expectations of what the good society would look like and confronts us with the greatest question: are we able to build a better society, despite our flaws.
Yanis Varoufakis is the author of the bestseller ‘Talking to My Daughter: A Brief History of Capitalism’ and two previous books, ‘Adults in the Room’, a memoir of his time as finance minister of Greece, and an economic history of Europe, ‘And the Weak Suffer What They Must?’, both of which were number one bestsellers.
Born in Athens in 1961, Varoufakis was for many years a professor of economics in Britain, Australia and the USA before he entered politics. He is co-founder of the international grassroots movement, DiEM25, and in 2019 won the election as one of its representatives in the Greek Parliament. He is currently a Professor of Economics at the University of Athens.
