Politics of Fear Summary

Politics of Fear: Beyond Left and Right by Frank Furedi

The terms "left" and "right" pervade all our discussions of politics. But do they mean anything any more? And is it really satisfactory to reduce all our political debate to these two terms? Furedi shows how contemporary and recent developments, including the Cold War, the Culture Wars and Third Way-type managerialism, have created the need for a new conception of politics with an adequate conception of humanity - one that "remoralises" politics by taking humans seriously, recognises the centrality of morality and discussions of right and wrong, and utilises our imaginations. Furedi proposes a new, and inevitably controversial, humanist politics to escape the trap of 20th century political ideology.
