Nick Cohen explores the feeling of angry impotence which has swept modern Britain during the Labour administration. The text shifts focus away from Westminster and into the more diverse and unexpected territories of New Labour influence, from America to India. Based on original research and interviews - and an instinct for stories other journalists ignore - this book combines contemporary history with satire and polemic.
