In 2001, Tony Blair declared that those who opposed the war on terror had been proved wrong along with critics of unfettered corporate power and free market capitalism. Ten years later, the critics have been comprehensively vindicated and the champions of the New World Order proved catastrophically wrong. The evidence on hand includes the disastrous occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq and the failure of an economic model that has brought the Western World to its knees. The Revenge of History is a powerful corrective to the discredited dominant account of the first decade of the twenty-first century. As Seumas Milne shows in a panoramic narrative that reaches from 9/11 to beyond the Arab uprisings, crisis and war have turned the orthodoxies of a generation on their head. The neoliberal market, hailed as the only economic option, crashed with devastating consequences; calamitous western military interventions demonstrated the limits of US global power; the rise of China challenged both; while Latin America has embraced social and economic alternatives that were said no longer to exist. In a culture dominated by eager apologists of power, Milne has consistently written against the grain. This book offers a compelling perspective on the convulsions that have brought us to today's crisis and the shape of the emerging politics of the future and an indictment of a global and corporate empire in decline.

Review:

Reading Seumas Milne, one often has a feeling of physical relief: finally someone not only sees the truth but articulates it with thrilling erudition and moral clarity. Tracking a decade of ruinous lies from the right and unheeded warnings from the left, this is a book with an urgent message: it's time to win more than arguments. --Naomi Klein, author of the Shock Doctrine and No Logo

Praise for The Enemy Within: Seumas Milne's masterly investigation ... is one of the finest political exposes in our time. --John Pilger

Praise for The Enemy Within: Riveting. It knocks spots off the usual 'whodunnit'. --Guardian

Book Description Verso Books, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. From the outset, Seumas Milne's Guardian essays on the West's war on terror provoked angry denunciations on both sides of the Atlantic. A decade on, the advocates of violent capitalism have been silenced. From class to religion, Blair to Obama, Palestine to Pakistan, bank bailouts to the Arab uprisings, the rise of China to the wave of change in Latin America, Milne exposes the breakdown of the new world order - and draws out the prospects for the emerging politics of the future. In a media culture dominated by eager apologists, Milne has consistently written against the grain. This book offers a compelling perspective on the convulsions that have brought us to today's crisis - and a powerful indictment of a global and corporate empire in decline.
