The Dark Knight and the Puppet Master
Foyalty 30

The Dark Knight and the Puppet Master (Paperback)

£9.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

'Richly nuanced, the most stimulating book I have read on Labour in ages' Martin Kettle, Guardian



'A brilliant book ... a reading of left-wing politics that suggests a road ahead' Independent



'The best book written about the Labour Party in recent years ... a must read for those of us wanting the Labour Party to become once again a Party of Government' Douglas Alexander



A 'dark knight' conflict between good and evil; control by elite puppet masters; nostalgia for a golden age: these are the core myths of populism. And these narratives, argues Chris Clarke, have seduced the Left in Britain, causing bitter division and electoral disaster. Only by breaking this narrative spell and moving towards pluralism can Labour hope to fix itself - and to one day hold power again.



Previously published by Rowman & Littlefield and Policy Network under the title Warring Fictions
