Journalist, campaigner and podcast co-host with Owen Jones, Ellie Mae O'Hagan has emerged as one of the smartest observers of contemporary politics, and in The New Normal provides a brilliant and incisive analysis of the current political watershed we face. The New Normal offers ...a razor-sharp analysis of the period between the end of the Cold War and the financial crash, showing how and why it was different from simple neoliberalism. Ellie Mae O'Hagan calls it 'Superpolitics', and demonstrates how it came to encapsulate the dictum of one of its begetters, Margaret Thatcher: 'There is no alternative.' The New Normal explores how both sides struggled to respond to the crash, what happened when they both eventually did, and how - at least until Superpolitics re-asserts itself, as it may yet - we face living in a world which is 'either Marine Le Pen's, or Jeremy Corbyn's'.
