5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the title should have been "The Prophecies of Enoch"., 6 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Enoch at 100: A re-evaluation of the life, politics and philosophy of Enoch Powell (Hardcover)
A collection of Enochs speeches from the 50's, 60's and 70's and commentary from contributors across the political spectrum, this, certainly as far as Europe is concerned, is like reading prophecy come true. The jaw dropping accuracy of Enoch's understanding of how Sovereign entities work and the consequences of the course of actions proposed during that time period is made even more remarkable in that those statements were made between 40 and 60 years ago.

As I turn each page, I am left with a depressing sense of disappointment in those who have led Great Britain for over half a century and the mistakes they have made, prewarned with predicted consequences. Greater still is a sense of lost opportunity and disappointment in Enoch himself. For someone with such a huge intellect and integrity, his straightforward honesty seems to have ensured a political career in the wings. Was Enoch the best Prime Minister Britain never had? Of course, we will never know but this book is an eye opener and offers a benchmark against which one can view todays politicians.

If, like me, the financial crisis and scandals and the European Currency mess has reawakened your interest in current affairs and politics, Enoch at 100 is a fascinating read.

It is also one of those books you can dip in and out of at will. I keep mine next to the bog!
