This is political journalist Matthew D'Ancona's call to arms to challenge this age of political extremism, lazy populism and democratic torpor.
This is a call to arms.
The old tools of political analysis are obsolete - they have rusted and are no longer fit for purpose. We've grown lazy, wedded to the assumption that, after ruptures such as Brexit, the pandemic and the rise of the populist Right, things will eventually go 'back to normal'.
Award-winning political writer Matthew d'Ancona invites you to think afresh: to seek new ways of challenging political extremism, bombastic populism and democratic torpor on both Left and Right.
In this groundbreaking book, he proposes a new way of understanding our era and plots a way forward. With rigorous analysis, he argues that we need to understand the world in a new way, with a framework built from the three I's: identity, ignorance and innovation.

An interesting contribution
The marketplace for books on identity politics the rise of populism and the failings of the meritocracy is crowded. This is a worthwhile contribution because of Matthew d’Anconas liberall, but self reflective, approach.
Not a lot was new but I enjoyed the way the ideas were put together, particularly when I agreed with them.
