I need to declare an interest; I knew Gary Younge (slightly) at university, and have read his previous books with great admiration.
The Speech, however, is a whole different thing; not least because of its scope, since the 5 page bibliography references Angela Davis, Karl Marx, and Stevie Wonder.
It is immaculately researched, beautifully written, and should be on every school curriculum as a fine example of academic analysis transformed into breathtakingly good writing.
Bravo Mr Younge.
