Finkelstein and Freedland are two of the UK’s most brilliant social and political commentators: questing, clear-headed, frequently impassioned. Writing from radically different perspectives, they have analysed and dissected every major event and pressing issue of recent times.
Now they bring their in-depth knowledge and wit to a wide-ranging conversation about their political ideals and the (sorry) state of the world.
