The Editors of this book have put together a collection of post-modern musings by a clique of old-left academics from the University of Hull on the defects of contemporary democratic societies (like their own) and on the evils of globalisation. They also provide a spirited defence of anti-western terrorism and terrorists; a project which is substantially sustained by a transparently self-serving use of both terms. Purchase of the book is only recommended for citizens or parents who may wish to know what is being taught in departments of politics and sociology over much of the Western World.
