Chris Nineham Discusses "How The Establishment Lost Control"

The post-war consensus is breaking up. The 2014 Scottish referendum, the election of Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader and the turmoil of the EU referendum all testify to an insurgent mood amongst swathes of the population.

In "How The Establishment Lost Control" Chris Nineham - founder member of the Stop The War colaition and author of "The People Versus Tony Blair" - attempts to explain these dramatic developments and to show how they question received notions about politics, history and how change happens. Above all they challenge widespread assumptions about the resilience of elite hegemony, the influence of conventional structures of thought and the ability of the mass of the population to think autonomously in a `post-ideological age'.
