Review of Wolfgang Streeck (2021), Zwischen Globalismus und Demokratie [Between Globalism and Democracy]. Frankfurt a.M.: Suhrkamp

Wolfgang Streeck’s latest book consolidates his contribution to the establishment of a literary genre: the popular scientific op-ed in long form. If chosen by professors emeritus, it will end up in a book of hundreds of pages. The form of an op-ed allows him freedom regarding academic diligence. And the well-read and learned opinion can be formulated in such a way that it cannot be wrong, because the long form allows the author to assert one thing as well as its exact opposite.
