The old tools of political analysis are obsolete – they have rusted and are no longer fit for purpose. We’ve grown lazy, wedded to the assumption that, after ruptures such as Brexit, the pandemic, and the rise of the populist Right, things will eventually go ‘back to normal’. Matthew d’Ancona invites us to think afresh: to seek new ways of challenging political extremism, bombastic populism and democratic torpor on both Left and Right.
