We are in a unique moment as it is becoming clear that the old frames of reference are not working, that the narratives used for decades to stave off progressive causes are in danger of being exposed as falsehoods, that the myths, be it of sexual liberation or of white non-identity, are at odds with the lived experience and in urgent need of revision.
Nesrine Malik applies her uniquely sharp intellect to a range of stories used to maintain the status quo. As the centre ground is being eroded, she challenges us to find new narrators whose stories can fill the void and unite us behind a shared progressive vision.
Do women mistake access for arrival? Has the concept of political correctness been weaponised to avoid ceding space to those excluded from power? Is whiteness an identity with barriers to entry? These are some of the questions at the centre of Nesrine Malik's radical and compelling analysis.

Finger-pointing at the world
Intelligent, with lots of useful examples, if you can stand the finger-pointing at anyone who even slightly disagrees. Narrated by the author in brilliant RP while pleading against white privilege is another of the contradictions of this book.

Fresh take on the topic of identity politics. Lots of excellent examples. Great narration too.
