Proceeding from an original system of thought , Alexander Boot argues that democracy in its present form betrays the political heritage of Christendom. Individual votes are rendered meaningless while power is invested in a detached political elite. Boot says the unsayable: that democracy has lost its former role as an important element in the political mix; now uncontested, it has become an empty slogan and a devious trick.
Alexander Boot is a provocative thinker and good writer. –Simon Heffer.
We need critics like Boot to be ruthless in their analyses of conventional wisdom. –Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali
A short review cannot do justice to the riches to be found in Alexander Boot s book. It repays reading and re-reading. Beautifully written and remarkable given the gravity of its subject-matter often highly amusing. –Rev. Dr. Peter Mullen
