THE PHENOMENAL BESTSELLER

'Fantastic, timely, eye-opening' Armando Iannucci, New Statesman, Books of the Year
'Captures a collective sense of anger and awakening' Matt Haig, Observer, Books of the Year

Behind our democracy lurks a powerful but unaccountable network of people who wield massive power and reap huge profits in the process. In exposing this shadowy and complex system that dominates our lives, Owen Jones sets out on a journey into the heart of our Establishment, from the lobbies of Westminster to the newsrooms, boardrooms and trading rooms of Fleet Street and the City. Exposing the revolving doors that link these worlds, and the vested interests that bind them together, Jones shows how, in claiming to work on our behalf, the people at the top are doing precisely the opposite. In fact, they represent the biggest threat to our democracy today - and it is time they were challenged.

'A book of revelations ... The Establishment have stitched it up - stitched you up - and they know it' Danny Dorling, Times Higher Education Supplement

'A dissection of the profoundly and sickeningly corrupt state that is present-day Britain. He is a fine writer, and this is a truly necessary book' Philip Pullman

'Owen Jones is a phenomenon of our times' David Kynaston, The Times Literary Supplement

'You will be enlightened and angry' Irvine Welsh
