While the territory covered by this book may be unfamiliar to many readers in the US-- the political scene of the UK from the sixties to present day-- the picture it paints may be all too familiar to the observer of today's politics. The racist, authoritarian agenda of British nationalism in all its guises bears more than a slight resemblance to the creed of many an American Tea Partier.
