Reviews

  • An eye-opening state-of-the-nation book.

    Armando Iannucci, New Statesman Books of the Year
  • I'll never look at UK class politics in the same way after Owen Jones's bracing and principled The Establishment

    Naomi Klein, Guardian Books of the Year
  • I am delighted to see social class storm its way back into our contemporary history: Owen Jones's The Establishment offers a well-documented as well as searing critique of the groupthink that binds together our rulers

    David Kynaston, Guardian Books of the Year
  • Owen Jones may have the face of a baby and the voice of George Formby but he is our generation's Orwell and we must cherish him

    Russell Brand
  • This is the most important book on the real politics of the UK in my lifetime, and the only one you will ever need to read. You will be enlightened and angry

    Irvine Welsh
  • Owen Jones displays a powerful combination of cool analysis and fiery anger in this dissection of the profoundly and sickeningly corrupt state that is present-day Britain. He is a fine writer, and this is a truly necessary book

    Philip Pullman
  • Thorough and admirably vivid ... he is excellent on how the state has become a creature of capital, controlled by the corporate sector. As Jones shows, British capitalism is highly dependent on state largesse and rich corporations are the biggest scroungers of all

    New Statesman
  • Powerful . . . The book's great strength lies in the simple power of accumulation. Again and again, Jones connects the dots in parallel lines, so that the single examples that might in themselves be dismissed as circumstantial or overblown become more or less unanswerable . . . He is a writer of real rhetorical force

    Independent
  • A passionate account of political and economic injustice

    Observer
  • A book of revelations... The last time the British Establishment was so intertwined, so arrogant and so powerful was a century ago, and the last democratic revolution that redistributed wealth took a lifetime to play out

    Danny Dorling, Times Higher Education
