A Life in Questions
A Life in Questions

4.0 out of 5 stars 'A Job in Questions', 6 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Life in Questions (Hardcover)
An engaging run through his career (including his, to me, little known time in N Ireland and as a war reporter), and a sardonic take on managements he has suffered.Some nice insights into the prep required for interviews by himself and victims,and into University Challenge. However, apart from an interesting account of his origins and upbringing, there is little revealed of his private life, and existential questions it, for all I know, it might have posed, or of his political convictions other than a demand for straight answers; leaving me with unanswered questions as to what makes Paxman tick. It could have been titled 'A Job in Questions' - or a jobbing gardener in the political landscape.

Essential reading if you suspect Wakefield was hung out to dry by the BMA to stamp on the treat to mass vaccination.

4.0 out of 5 stars A final bringing together - better than Terry Pratchett's final Ank-Morpork book, 5 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A final bringing together - better than Terry Pratchett's final Ank-Morpork book, if a touch too moralistic compared with earlier Tiffany sagas.

Price: £25.00

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent and sympathetic account, 7 Jun. 2014

An excellent and sympathetic account, with good use of sources, and more pleasant reading than many academic texts - not marred to the point of annoyance by recapitilations towards the end.

The Collected Papers of Bertrand Russell, Volume 14: Pacifism and Revolution, 1916-18: 014
by Bertrand Russell
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £200.00

5.0 out of 5 stars The opposition, 24 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An indispensable - if hugely expensive - collection both for admirers of Russell and anyone interested in WWI, well introduced by the scholarly editors. Traces a dauntless and dogged opposition to the war, and then to the treatment of consciencious objectors up to 1916. At c.500 pages, not a quick read.


Main Currents of Marxism: The Golden Age v. 2: Its Rise, Growth and Dissolution (Oxford Paperbacks)
Main Currents of Marxism: The Golden Age v. 2: Its Rise, Growth and Dissolution (Oxford Paperbacks)
by Leszek Kolakowski
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic work, 16 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great erudition from a philosophically trained historian of ideas. No other book like it. Written when the Marxist tradition and the USSR were still in being, if not vigorous, some of the disputes seem distant, and others have developed new currency in the light of Global capitalism.
