Ill Fares The Land: A Treatise On Our Present Disc&hellip by Professor Tony Judt
Brilliant exposition on the 'locust years' of 1990-2010, the two decades 'lost' to neoliberalism and what the Left now needs to do to build a narrative for the future.

About the greatest man ever involved in football. Brilliant, absorbing and moving. A book about football, socialism and life. David Peace' s repetitive style works brilliantly, echoing the endless cycle of matches and seasons, but if you are a true fan of the game, you will love this detail; the weather descriptions and references to the line-ups and attendance details. But, Bill is always there, it's always from how he sees it and the reader is soon living every game, kicking every ball, re-living every memory with Bill too. The genius, warmth and humanity of the man comes across beautifully. A triumph of a book that I know will stay with me a long time.
