New Model Island: How to Build a Radical Culture Beyond the Idea of England

21,000+ Reviews has the highest-rated customer service of any bookstore in the world


From Orwell-reading centrists to right-wing extremists, there have been countless attempts in recent decades to reimagine the feudal nation that was once England. But there is a strong case for saying that `England' doesn't exist at all in the twenty-first century.

New Model Island examines a disparate range of cultural references-the late Mark Fisher, Dylan Thomas, Alton Towers, Northumbrian activism and Catholic Marxism-as it seeks to reimagine the architecture of the British Isles in the context of the energetic socialist revival of the moment.

Part utopian memoir, part elegy for the 2010s, New Model Island is an impassioned call for a new kind of dreaming about post-national identity in a post-capitalist future.
