Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From 9/11 to the Arab uprisings and beyond—encompassing the economic crisis, war on terror, rise of China and tide of change in Latin America—The Revenge of History turns the orthodoxies of the past generation on their head.  

In this coruscating account of the first decade of the twenty-first century, Seumas Milne presents a powerful indictment of a US global and corporate empire in—and its British and European camp followers. Milne traces the breakdown of a failed ‘free market’ system, exposes the power and resource grab driving western military interventions, explains the dynamo behind a roaring Chinese economy and highlights the social alternatives being developed in Latin America. Brilliant, bold and always incisive, The Revenge of History is essential reading for anyone wanting to understand what has gone wrong—and grasp the possibilities of an emerging future.

From 9/11 to the Arab Spring: the decade of living dangerously

Synopsis:

From 9/11 to the Arab Spring and beyond – encompassing the economic crisis, the rise of China, and conflicts in the Middle East – The Revenge of History turns the orthodoxies of the past generation on their head.

In this coruscating account of the first decade of the twenty-first century, Seumas Milne presents a powerful indictment of the United States, a global and corporate empire in decline. Milne also examines the causes of the credit crisis and the Great Recession, reveals the policy of humanitarian military intervention to be a failed land grab, explains the dynamo behind the roaring Chinese economy and discovers new models of society flourishing in Latin America. Brilliant, bold and always incisive, The Revenge of History is essential reading for anyone wanting to understand what has gone wrong.

Synopsis:

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, giving a different account of what really went on.
