By O'Hagan, Ellie Mae
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.
