Seumas Milne's book gives a perspective of what has brought us to today's crisis and the shape of the future politics. In The Revenge of History, a collection of his columns for Britain's Guardian newspaper over the last 10 years, Milne notes that the Cassandras who predicted a major financial crash, recognising that "deregulated markets generate crisis, not equilibrium", tended - like Paul Krugman, Ann Pettifor, David Harvey or Steve Keen - to hail from somewhere on the left of the political spectrum.

Expulsion and dispossession can’t be cause for celebration

Expulsion and dispossession can’t be cause for celebration. George Bush arrived in Jerusalem yesterday to celebrate Israel’s 60th anniversary and talk up what has to be the most bizarre proposal yet for achieving peace: a ‘shelf agreement’. This, Bush explained before he set out, would be a ‘description’ of a Palestinian state to be hammered out between the Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert before the end of the year.

From 9/11 to the Arab uprisings and beyond—encompassing the economic crisis, war on terror, rise of China and tide of change in Latin America—The Revenge of History turns the orthodoxies of the past generation on their head.   In this coruscating account of the first decade of the twenty-first century, Seumas Milne presents a powerful indictment of a US global and corporate empire in—and its British and European camp followers. Milne traces the breakdown of a failed ‘free market’ system, exposes the power and resource grab driving western military interventions, explains the dynamo behind a roaring Chinese economy and highlights the social alternatives being developed in Latin America. Brilliant, bold and always incisive, The Revenge of History is essential reading for anyone wanting to understand what has gone wrong—and grasp the possibilities of an emerging future.

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.

Milne's book seems to be a compilation of newspaper articles that have been previously written, but is still "extremely current" as it relates to the distortion of historical facts as it refers to foreign policy involving the major world players.

I would suggest that the reader view the witings as though they are "current" newspaper articles as opposed to a treatise...otherwise you will be disappointed.

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.

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.

I purchased this book because I thought it would be an intellectual and philosophical counterpoint to Francis Fukuyama's the End of History and the Last Man. Instead, what I found was a collection of articles written by liberal British journalist Seumas Milne during a period that stretches from right before 9/11, through the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and into the period of "nation building" in the aforementioned countries. Instead of taking a serious crack at Fukuyama's central thesis (that a society built upon the principles of democracy and capitalism allow an individual to simultaneously be equal and unequal, thus satisfying the desire for recognition and the impulse of themos and creating the best possible society), he simply points to the dual messes in Iraq and Afghanistan and says, "Look! The Neo-Conservative ideology has failed!" And while I will concede that the Neo-Con's ideology has taken some pretty big hits in the past decade or so, I would also say that the Arab Spring - a movement which saw many countries overthrow what some might consider to be more culturally appropriate styles of government for a try at democracy - shows that Fukuyama's central thesis is still alive and well. I found this book to be so useless that I carting it off to Half Priced Books after reading only two or three chapters.
