Ivan Krastev

Proposal Political Science, Popular Science

Award-winning author and political scientist Ivan Krastev provides a truly brilliant, international perspective on the geo-political stakes of the coronavirus pandemic.

Based on a piece written for the European Council for Foreign Relations, which was picked up by Die Zeit in Germany and syndicated widely elsewhere. This short, incisive book provides a uniquely informed viewpoint on how the pandemic, by placing immense pressure on societies, acts as a force of exposition, revealing latent structures and issues that may otherwise have remained unnoticed.  It examines the vital socio-political consequences of the coronavirus crisis, emerging as the world looks on.
