Fallout by Andrew Anthony

Book Description

In 2001 Andrew Anthony occupied a comfortable position within the liberal left media. A successful Observer and Guardian journalist, he believed he was on the right side of the argument - the left side. But after the events of 11 September, he noticed that many colleagues and friends seemed determined to understand the perpetrator rather than support the victim. America, in their view, had it coming. In rejecting that analysis, Anthony set out on the painful process of unpicking the prejudices that had come to shape progressive, liberal and wider public opinion. The Fallout is a polemical memoir, an account of Anthony's political education in Thatcher's Britain and his stark mid-life reassessment. It's a book about crime and violence, liberty and society, principles and practice, and about vital questions that no longer match their received answers.

Fallout by Andrew Anthony Fallout, Paperback (January 2017)

After the events of 11 September, the author noticed that many colleagues seemed determined to understand the perpetrator rather than support the victim. America, in their view, had it coming. In rejecting that analysis, the author set out to unpick the prejudices that had come to shape progressive, liberal and wider public opinion.

On Penalties by Andrew Anthony On Penalties, Paperback (May 2001)

The penalty shoot-out is the greatest set piece of sporting drama ever conceived. Cruel, arbitrary, tortuous and unfair, it has also presented the England football team with a new and infinitely more punishing manner in which to lose. This title deals with this topic.
