This work, by a former editor of "The Times" and an instinctive Tory, argues that despite conservative propaganda the 1980's and early 1990's have seen a great increase in the centralization of power. Despite privatization, deregulation and devolution, the government asserted its control over schools, universities, the courts, local government, and the NHS. The book describes the situation, and asks what this means for democracy.
