    After a reasonably promising start, I was a bit disappointed with this book I was drawn to it by Anthony Sampson s fine reputation but it didn t quite stack up that way, at least until the final chapter.My first reason for disappointment is altogether a shortcoming on my own part, and is no reflection on Sampson It is, quite simply, that he died as long ago as 2004 I didn t know I had allowed myself to be swayed in part by the blurb on the cover Cutting Edge Andrew Marr Well, I m not sure which edge he found so cutting, but its time has surely passed to a degree.I m not sure it was ever there anyway On reflection, the book comes across as an update of earlier analyses of contemporary Britain, incisive when they was first written, but which did not somehow survive the attempt to update That may or may not be fair but that s how it feels.In the early chapters it does indeed come across like an analysis of contemporary politics, and one s only regret therefore is that the last ten years have...

    a sobering and well researched look at the roots and branches of power in British society I would be interested to see how much the weight of power has shifted in the last 10 years or so, with and going to the banking elites and away from everyday people.
