Pressestimmen'A stimulating contribution to the current reorientation of democratic socialist thought.' Third Way 'A profoundly interesting book, addressing the crisis of contemporary politics with a depth of insight and a breadth of vision sadly lacking in most of our current 'political' writing.' New Times 'Every Tory para-intellectual should read this book to see how a clear and informed mind on the left can still pursue the battle of ideas.' The Times Literary Supplement 'This stimulating collection of essays will further enhance Geoff Mulgan's reputation as a political thinker of impressive range and depth.' Renewal 'Subtle, profound and pioneering.' Times Higher Education Supplement 'Politics in an Antipolitical Age is a worthwhile contribution to the debate over the future of the left, and an attempt to understand the non-politicized 'generation X.' As such it and Geoff Mulgan's arguments need to be carefully considered and discussed.' Political Science
