The Revenge of History: The Battle for the 21st Century by Seumas Milne
The Revenge of History is a corrective to the accepted account of the first decade of the twenty-first century. In 2001, Tony Blair claimed that anyone who questioned the dominance of the neoliberal economy and the doctrine of military intervention was "proved wrong." Ten years later, who looks stupid now? Throughout this period, Milne has been writing the dissenting opinion, offering an alternative perspective on the big historical developments and giving a different account of what really went on.
