9780099507857: The Fallout: How a guilty liberal lost his innocence

In 2001 Andrew Anthony occupied a comfortable position within the liberal left media. A successful Observer and Guardian journalist, he believed he was on the right side of the argument - the left side. But after the events of 11 September, he noticed that many colleagues and friends seemed determined to understand the perpetrator rather than support the victim.

America, in their view, had it coming. In rejecting that analysis, Anthony set out on the painful process of unpicking the prejudices that had come to shape progressive, liberal and wider public opinion.

The Fallout is a polemical memoir, an account of Anthony's political education in Thatcher's Britain and his stark mid-life reassessment. It's a book about crime and violence, liberty and society, principles and practice, and about vital questions that no longer match their received answers.

Review:

"A subtle, delicately nuanced, impassioned, courageous, elegantly formulated and far-reaching examination of the state of our ailing nation" (Geoff Dyer Observer)

"A vivid and sensitive writer...clever, engaging and palpably sincere" ( Spectator)

"This outstanding book works on one level as cultural commentary ... Anthony's book skilfully interweaves autobiography with cultural and political commentary. It is sparely written, frequently affecting, and his judgements are morally sane and sensible" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"A timely, pertinent and brilliantly argued book" (Nick Hornby)

"Beautifully written, illuminating and moving" (Roy Liddle Sunday Times Best Books of 2007)

Review:

`Anthony certainly succeeds at his stated intention, which is to lead the way towards more open debate. Precise and ruthless, he smokes out left-wing hypocrisy on all sides'.
