About this product
- DescriptionControversial and timely, Frank Furedi's new book looks at how fear has pervaded politics, creating a political culture which lacks the confidence or desire to change things in a big way. Leaders from both the right and left have shied away from dynamic ideas and broad agendas, preferring to focus on 'lifestyle issues' such as abortion, school lunches and literacy in the classroom. Previously radical groups have developed a mistrust of human ambition and experimentation, and instead seek stability and safety. Voters too have pulled away from political life saying they no longer trust their leaders and indicating their disagreement with a public figure by saying they find them 'scary.
