Book Description

28 Jan 2004
'This timely collection is a reminder that Young is one of the best political forecasters we have...Memorable' Sunday HeraldSupping with the Devils brings together Hugo Young's incisive and wide-ranging journalism. Starting with the 1980s, it interprets the major events that have punctuated British political life, from the resignation of Margaret Thatcher to the rise of New Labour. But it is more than a book about party politics. Supping with the Devils ranges over the nature and future of the British state; Britain's place in the world (especially its relationship with the United States and Europe); immigration and the murder of Stephen Lawrence; freedom of information and the crisis of religious belief; the future of fox-hunting and the power of art. Urgent, penetrating and always original, these articles, taken together, confirm Young's reputation as our most morally engaged commentator.'Young is the fairest writer on politics I know...He is meticulous with facts, fastidious with judgements and generous to the opposing argument. He enriches his reader.' Matthew Parris, Literary Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Political journalism at its finest 6 Feb 2010
I read this after reading the Hugo Young Papers. Either stands alone, but taken together they are a monument to the finest liberal journalist the UK has produced. The articles which were included in the edition produced after his death, in particular, show a sharpness and urgency of someone who knew he was living on borrowed time.

4.0 out of 5 stars A series of insightful articles by a great journalist 22 July 2005
By Avicenna - Published on
Hugo Young's untimely death has robbed us of his sharply focused and brilliant mind. This series of articles about our contemporary times and the immediate past only serves to illustrate how great that loss is.
