This gripping, fast-paced and provocative book is an alternative history of Britain. It shows how the carefully nurtured image of British fair play and liberalism has in fact concealed the real drama: the raw manipulation of power by and for a small number of people. British capitalism has, historically, actively undermined and suppressed any real change to the balance of power: this book warns that a future progressive government will face the same intransigence. --Brian Eno, musician and author of A Year with Swollen Appendices
