9780091729608: The Enchanted Glass: Britain and Its Monarchy

By the author of "The Break-Up of Britain?" and "The Left Against Europe", this is an examination of the British monarchy. Partly historical reflection, partly political polemic, this book argues that the Royal Family is an anachronism and an obstruction to Britains future development.

Review:

Dazzling, cliche-nailing - The first serious study for more than a hundred years to take a coldly analytical look at this most emotion-charged part of our heritage, it reflects a growing sense of the peculiarity of it all. --Observer

A long and brilliant meditation on the nature of the British state, its identity and national culture... one of the most powerful and original pieces of writing I have ever read on the subject. --London Review of Books
