5 stars

Admittedly I find it hard to imagine giving Stuart Hall's writing any less than five stars, but this really was an absolute pleasure to read. The editors have collected a series of essays all the way from the Suez crisis to the first years of the coalition government. There's so much perceptive and prescient analysis in here, and with writing that, even if only briefly, makes me feel more articulate and erudite. Just lovely.
