My new book is Elitism: A Progressive Defence (Biteback, 2020). My previous book is Anti-Politics: On the Demonization of Ideology, Authority and the State (Repeater, 2018). The one before that is Get Real: How to See Through the Hype, Spin and Lies of Modern Life (Fourth Estate, 2012). I write for the Guardian, Prospect, the London Review of Books, the Independent, and the New Statesman, among other places, and I speak at conferences, festivals and in the media about my ideas and research.
