Will Hutton - The World We're In (2nd Hand Paperback)
Will Hutton turns his attention to the global picture, and the ways in which the new world should be ordered.
To understand the global economy, Hutton argues, one must first understand the United States where, over the past 30 years, the forces of conservatism have achieved such supremacy as to reduce liberalism to a term of abuse. The results have been dire: America is a weaker, fragmented society, and its economic strengths are oversold and misunderstood.
But Britain and Europe are different: our attitudes towards property, equality, social solidarity and the public realm are strikingly distinct from America's current conservative leanings
Europe should not be afraid to stand up against the American version of globalisation, and champion the cause of a reinvigorated international society - taking over the mantle now abandoned by the US.

"Hutton is obviously right to argue that there are clear differences between the American and European social and economic models. While I prefer, on balance, our European way of ordering our lives, the American way is not nearly as flawed as Hutton suggests, and the European way is not so perfect." - The Guardian.
