it was amazing
bookshelves: politics, journalism
Read in July, 2012

A real hot cross bun of a book. read it now or it'll be out of date. Mason does a great job of trying to link up all the disparate conflicts going on around the world. This book has an immediacy which is compelling because he seems to be a Kate Adie figure - if he turns up you're in deep deep trouble. He attempts to find historical parallels and he finds some political philosophy which is pertinent. His flailings around, trying to explain the here and now, show the complexity, power and interconnectivity of the interesting times we are living in.
