Facts are Subversive : Political Writing from a Decade without a Name Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


'Timothy Garton Ash holds a mirror that magnifies...

He writes masterfully and with compassion' - Neal Ascherson, ObserverFor more than thirty years, Timothy Garton Ash has traveled among truth tellers and political charlatans to record, with scalpel-sharp precision, what he has found.

Facts are Subversive, which collects his writings since the millennium, addresses some of the crucial questions of our time: what happens to people who have endured long dictatorships when they try to found a democratic state?

How can freedom from tyranny be won? How are free expression, equality before the law and equal rights for men and women sustained in a society of different faiths and ethnicities?

This is history of the present on a scale by turns panoramic and human: urgent, exhilarating and necessary.
