5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, 30 April 2009

This is available as a free pdf download. I spent an hour reading the first half of the pdf and have decided I MUST buy the book, if only to pass on to friends when I have finished. Sean Gabb has done the research to justify all I've been thinking since I left school in '86!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gabb the revolutionary, 2 Aug 2007
By 
Philip Inman (Debrecen, Hungary) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This is a short work, of 106 pages, excluding the covers, and, of those, original content is to be found on pages 5 to 89. The other pages are taken up with a table of contents, an index and a couple of articles recycled from Gabb's other writings. Those who read only the back cover and the first dozen pages might be inclined to put the work aside as yet another fringe pamphlet of the "why oh why?" variety, listing the grumbles about modern Britain which could be found any day in conservative newspaper blogs. Tony Blair, Polly Toynbee, politically correct Chief Constables, the BBC: all the familiar bogeymen (should that be bogeypersons) are taken out to be shuddered over. Persevere, this reviewer urges potential readers. Make it to chapter five, page 53, and experience the sudden change of gear under the heading of "What is to be done?" Was Gabb alluding to Lenin's work of the same name? He doesn't let on. The effect, however, is to stiffen the sinews of his readers, for here is a revolutionary programme. For the rest of the book, which after all is not far away, he offers a tantalising glimpse of what a sovereign parliament of England might yet achieve. Gabb admits in the end the unlikelihood of his vision ever coming to pass, and is reduced to asking for money. The effect is rather like listening to a musical tone poem. There is a short message, uplifting and easily digested, and when the last cadences have died away, one is left with a sense of loss. On that basis, buy the book. Anyone prepared to pay ten pounds or more for a CD, offering, say, another interpretation of the Second Horn Concerto of Richard Strauss, can afford the 9.99 for Gabb's work. Here is a final, one hopes, constructive criticism: the index as it stands is almost useless. It would be better to have two indexes, one for subjects, the other for names. Reasonably-priced concordancing software can now be purchased to help with this. Full marks to Gabb for giving the reader running footnotes, but a separate bibliography at the end would have helped too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A call to arms, 16 Oct 2008
By 
Sets out how conservatives and libertarians can and should work together to protect the fast vanishing traditional British liberties that both admire. Fast-paced and persuasive.
