For a decent overview of Die Linke, albeit one that is in dire need of an update to reflect the events that have taken place since, there is this article at Jacobin:

"The Left Party is neither a radical anti-capitalist formation like France’s ailing Nouveau Parti Anticapitaliste or Portugal’s Bloco Esquerda, both of which define themselves as being to the left of both “official” socialist and (post-)communist parties; nor is it a social-democratized formation such as France’s Communist Party or Italy’s tragically splintered Rifondazione Communista. Rather, it is all of these things, in one formally unified, but internally contentious formation."


It is, alas, behind a paywall, so you will have to purchase the issue of Jacobin it appears in.
