THE PHENOMENAL BESTSELLER 'Fantastic, timely, eye-opening' Armando Iannucci, New Statesman, Books of the Year 'Captures a collective sense of anger and awakening' Matt Haig, Observer, Books of the Year Behind our democracy lurks a powerful but unaccountable network of people who wield massive power and reap huge profits in the process. In exposing this shadowy and complex system that dominates our lives, Owen Jones sets out on a journey into the heart of our Establishment, from the lobbies of Westminster to the newsrooms, boardrooms and trading rooms of Fleet Street and the City.

The Establishment have stitched it up - stitched you up - and they know it' Danny Dorling, Times Higher Education Supplement 'A dissection of the profoundly and sickeningly corrupt state that is present-day Britain. He is a fine writer, and this is a truly necessary book' Philip Pullman 'Owen Jones is a phenomenon of our times' David Kynaston, The Times Literary Supplement 'You will be enlightened and angry' Irvine Welsh

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The status quo I considered this book a rehash of known newspaper comments, although the chapter on Ed Milliband has been overtaken by events

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compelling If nothing else, this is a compelling book. It draws together the loose bits and pieces that are out there, but exist as fragments, to create a compelling argument for what most people deep down know what is wrong with Western Society. The one criticism is that it fails to offer a credible alternative that will have broad appeal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great read As a YouTube subscriber to Russell Brand's 'the Trews', I found Owen's book to cover similar themes and ideas.
