About the book:

For some time past Nick Cohen has been, for all intents and purposes, the sole exponent of Her Majesty's loyal opposition. With a rump Conservative minority more intent on internal battles and a left wing smothered by the New Labour media machine, Cohen has been almost alone as a critic of the Blair regime. Like the little boy calling out about the Emperor's new clothes, he has been one of the most consistent and forthright opponents of New Labour.

Cruel Britannia is a collection of Cohen's writings in the Observer, London Review of Books, New Statesman and the Jewish Quarterly. Collected together and embellished by revision and more recent additions, this book comprises a serious indictment of the UK government and confirms Cohen as the strongest and most convincing voice from the left in recent years. Taken together these essays and articles cover nearly every possible area of policy and throughout the writing is incisive and the criticism thorough and thoughtful. As the Cassandra of his time, Cohen deserves to be read and re-read by all people who have an interest in the development of British and European politics. --Douglas Pretsell
