            For a time after the end of Communism, intellectuals and politicians across Europe and America celebrated a great achievement, a common progressive purpose and, very often, personal friendships. The euphoria quickly evaporated, the common purpose and centre ground gradually disap...peared and eventually - as this book compellingly relates - the relationships which went with it completely soured. Anne Applebaum traces a familiar history in an unfamiliar way, looking at the trajectories of individuals caught up in the public events of the last three decades. When politics polarises, and authoritarians start to make the running, which side do you back? If you are a journalist, an intellectual, a civic leader, do you swallow what they are feeding you? When they appropriate history, or pedal conspiracies, or eviscerate the media and the judiciary, do you go along with it? Twilight of Democracy is a new kind of political writing, which shows how the personal and the political are inextricably mixed, and brings a fresh understanding to the dynamics of public life in Europe and America, both in recent decades and now.

            A good society needs a balance between aptitudes relating to Head (cognitive), Hand (manual/craft) and Heart (caring/emotional). In recent decades in Western societies they have got out of kilter. One form of human aptitude -cognitive ability - has become the gold standard of hum...an esteem. The cognitive class now shapes society, and largely in its own interests: in the knowledge economy, the over-expansion of higher education and in the very idea of a successful life. To put it bluntly: smart people have become too powerful. David Goodhart, who in his last book described the divide between the worldviews of the Anywheres and Somewheres, now reveals the story of a cognitive takeover that has gathered pace in the past forty years. As recently as the 1970s most people left school without qualifications, now in the UK almost 40 per cent of jobs are graduate-only. He shows how we are now reaching 'Peak Head' as the knowledge economy needs fewer knowledge workers, yet there is a crisis of recruitment in caring jobs. A democratic society that wants to avoid widespread disaffection must respect and reward a broad range of achievement covering both cognitive and non-cognitive aptitudes, and must provide meaning and value for people who cannot, or do not want to, achieve in the classroom and professional career market. This is the story of the struggle for status and dignity in the 21st century.
