The Fallout (Andrew Anthony)
Readable story of political awakening by a formerly left-wing Guardian journalist. His understanding of foreign affairs was mugged by 9/11, and his attitude to crime was mugged rather more violently. As he says, to be in favour of gay rights and free speech now marks you out as a right wing lunatic Islamophobe. It's nice to have the company.
