Product Details

Praise

“The most forceful and original mind to confront, demask and anatomise the British state.”
—Neal Ascherson, London Review of Books

“A luminous guide to the morbidities unleashed by the relentless machinery of post-imperial decline.”
—Paul Gilroy

“Tom Nairn pioneered critical retrospect of the United Kingdom, and scandalised people by looking forward calmly to its disintegration.”
—Perry Anderson

“A creative intellectual toolkit for a political emergency, assisting Scots, Welsh and English democrats alike to finally break the chains of Westminster.”
—Hilary Wainwright

“Densely and brilliantly argued … original and perceptive.”
Economist

“Burning-glass of a mind … disconcerting in its withering contempt not only for the British state but for everything associated with it.”
Guardian

“Vitriolic wit … The method is resolutely materialist.”
Time Out

“The intellectual godfather of modern Scottish nationalism.”
Herald
