German weekly Der Spiegel’s cover story: “The Left [goes] under: Why the SPD, Die Linke and the Greens have to rediscover themselves”

Teaser: “The coalition talks revealed the weaknesses of the losers in the last election — Merkel, Schulz and Seehofer. Discontent is growing in the parties and it took great effort on the part of the leaders to maintain their authority. Behind the curtains, a power shift is already under discussion.”

“Hung out to dry — The SPD shreds itself, Die Linke are in danger of a split, the Greens are drifting to the right. The political left in Germany and in Europe is more powerless than ever.”
