Supping with the devils

£3.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

'This timely collection is a reminder that Young is one of the best political forecasters we have . . . Memorable' - Sunday Herald.

Supping with the Devils brings together Hugo Young's incisive and wide-ranging journalism. Starting with the 1980s, it interprets the major events that have punctuated British political life, from the resignation of Margaret Thatcher to the rise of New Labour. But it is more than a book about party politics. Supping with the Devils ranges over the nature and future of the British state; Britain's place in the world (especially its relationship with the United States and Europe); immigration and the murder of Stephen Lawrence; freedom of information and the crisis of religious belief; the future of fox-hunting and the power of art. Urgent, penetrating and always original, these articles, taken together, confirm Young's reputation as our most morally engaged commentator.

'Young is the fairest writer on politics I know...He is meticulous with facts, fastidious with judgements and generous to the opposing argument. He enriches his reader.' - Matthew Parris, Literary Review.
