Journalist/writer/translator/socialist. I mostly spend my time in Rome, Italy. Amongst other things, I’m the co-director of Standing Army (2010), an award-winning feature-length documentary on US military bases featuring Gore Vidal and Noam Chomsky; and the author of The Battle for Europe: How an Elite Hijacked a Continent – and How We Can Take It Back (Pluto Press, 2014), Reclaiming the State: A Progressive Vision of Sovereignty for a Post-Neoliberal World (co-authored with Bill Mitchell; Pluto Press, 2017) and The Covid Consensus: The Global Assault on Democracy and the Poor—A Critique from the Left (co-authored with Toby Green; 2023). 

My articles have appeared in numerous online and printed publications. I’m a regular contributor for UnHerd and Compact.

I can be contacted at the following address: battleforeurope[at] My Twitter account is @battleforeurope. You can also follow me on Facebook (though I mostly write in Italian) and/or sign up to my Substack to receive updates about articles etc.
