The New Left Viewed from the South

Luiz Carlos Bresser-Pereira

In Anthony Giddens, ed. (2001) The Global Third Way Debate. Cambridge: Polity Press: 258-371. Paper presented at the Centre for Brazilian Studies, Oxford University, December 1999.


Abstract. The third way is the modern expression of the new and moderate left. There is an objective definition of left. To be left means to be ready to risk social order in behalf of social justice. But historically the left moves as the political center cyclically moves from left to right and vice-versa. Besides, the political center is different from country to country.
