Editorial Reviews

Review

“Reading Seumas Milne, one often has a feeling of physical relief: finally someone not only sees the truth but articulates it with thrilling erudition and moral clarity. Tracking a decade of ruinous lies from the right and unheeded warnings from the left, this is a book with an urgent message: it’s time to win more than arguments.” (Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine)

“Seumas Milne’s masterly investigation ... is one of the finest political exposes in our time.” (John Pilger, in praise of The Enemy Within)

About the Author

Milne has likely written the most important book ever for the future history of our world.

In "The Revenge of History" Milne properly diagnoses the cancer of the world's first corporate/financial/militarist and truly Global Empire, which came to secret fruition during the last three decades, and which disguised itself behind a facade of Vichy-like 'faux-democratic' governments and propagandist media, most prominently in the US, UK, EU, and Israel.

"The Revenge of History" also corrects and reverses Francis Fukuyama's influential 1992 "The End of History", which Fukuyama himself was already in the process of correcting with his 2012 'Foreign Affairs' article, "The Future of History" (and forth coming book, which Milne has now prefigured).

Milne has additionally shown that Naomi Klein's "Shock Doctrine" of fear, which this Global Empire had applied to reach its diseased zenith during the first decade of the post-nation-state 21st century, can be reversed through a combination of accurate diagnosis, a new anti-propagandist 'truth doctrine', and potentially a second (global version) of the American Revolution to birth universal democracy against global empire.

Ironically, for the British Milne, he is far more broadly reprising the role of Paul Revere with his public alert against a private global Empire. We can only hope that his shouts are heard, believed, and responded to by all global public citizens.

Best luck and love to the fast expanding 'Occupy Empire' educational and revolutionary movement against this deceitful and disguised EMPIRE, which doesn't wear Red Coats, Red Stars, nor funny looking Nazi helmets.

The continuous news cycle and the "spin" on the news that makes it there encourages bad attention and forgetfulness of what we did at first retain. Seumas Milne puts the events of the first decade of the 21st Century into context in a way that will help me remember, hope, and work with clearer purpose.

À great journalist whose articles in The Guardian are always very informative and insightful BUT this book is is simply these articles put together in a book, so nothing new if read previously in The Guardian. The intro is basically a general summary of the content and adds nothing new, truly disappointing.
