Product description

Review

"Tough and principled, it is a testimony to his astonishing energy and stamina... It displays a calmness, a perfectly justified habit of intellectual (but always egalitarian) authority, and a considerable courage..." (T.H.E.S)

"Hoggart has been a pawky, powerful and articulate critic of the way we live now for more than forty years... His arguments are detailed and thoughtful... He demonstrates that not everyone, even now, has lost the passion, the decency and the critical rage that he mourns." (Financial Times)

Book Description

An uncompromising attack on the way English society has been damaged over the last 20 years by the denial of standards, the triumph of the market and cynical exploitation.
