About This Book

'Beautifully written, brilliantly insightful'
Owen Jones

Tony Blair and Noel Gallagher shaking hands at No. 10.Saatchi's YBAs setting the international art world aflame. Geri Halliwell in aUnion Jack dress. A time of vibrancy and optimism: when the country was unitedby the hope of a better and brighter future. So why, twenty years on, did thatfuture never happen?

Richard Power Sayeed takes a provocative look at thisepochal year, arguing that the dark undercurrents of that time had a much moreenduring legacy than the marketing gimmick of 'Cool Britannia'. He reveals howthe handling of the Stephen Lawrence inquiry ushered in a new type ofracism. How the feminism-lite of 'Girl Power' made sexism stronger. Andhow the promises of New Labour left the country more fractured thanever.

This lively, rich and evocative book explores why 1997 was a turning point for British culture and society - away from a fairer, brighter future and on the path to our current malaise.
