In Great Britain? he offers both a clear-eyed diagnosis of the problems facing our country – a uniquely toxic combination of huge inequality and stagnant economic growth – and a hopeful, bold vision for the alternative.

This treasure trove of enlightening and original analysis argues that our era of chaos and cynicism needs neither utopianism nor nostalgia, but a practical patriotism to raise living standards and create a more equal country. Torsten Bell passionately points us towards a Britain that we can actually build – a future worth fighting for.
