‘Now We Have Your Attention: The New Politics of the People’ by Jack Shenker


SKU: 9781784708870 Category:


Now We Have Your Attention makes sense of what is happening in British politics by taking a radically different perspective: the people’s.

From a warehouse in Manchester to a pub in Essex, from the outskirts of Glasgow to a racecourse in Durham, Jack Shenker takes us on a journey across Britain to uncover the root causes of our current crisis – and the struggles being waged for our future.

Shenker shows how a new kind of politics – local, personal and utterly fearless – is evolving beyond the confines of Westminster. Drawing on exceptional access to grassroots movements and rebellious communities, he introduces us to the citizens and leaders of tomorrow.

‘The picture that unfolds is shocking, but also inspiring, with rays of hope that a better future may be within reach’ Noam Chomsky

‘Shenker’s elegantly written book not only describes how the calamity of Britain today was long in the making, it outlines a future about which one can reasonably feel hope’ Pankaj Mishra
