My latest book, Reclaiming Individualism, has just shipped. At present it’s available only in hardback.
Individualism used to be a radical idea; it was a way of asserting the rights, dignity and value of each and every person. That was before it was dragged into a back alley and stripped of its valuables. For many people nowadays, individualism has become a defence of privilege – a cornerstone of arguments for unrestricted markets, privatisation and the commodification of everything. In Reclaiming Individualism, I make a case for a different balance, trying to show how individualism can be taken to argue for welfare, empowerment and government for the people.
