Susan George shares the story behind her new book

If you have ever wondered what it’s like to be in the shoes – and the minds – of the guardians of the capitalist system, Susan George can give you the key. “How to win the Class War” is a ‘Factual Fiction’: the facts are based on solid research, but the fictional setting and the story make you feel as though you’re reading a political thriller. The Report shows that the powerful are vulnerable to popular movements – if these movements understand the tactics they are up against.

John Palmer reviews Susan George‘s latest book How to Win the Class War: The Lugano Report II


Susan George has a world wide reputation as a searing critic of capitalist globalisation and as an activist for international social justice. Her first ‘Lugano Report’ more than a decade ago attracted attention in part because she wrote it in the persona of a sinister international cabal planning the future neo-liberal world economic order. In it George predicted, well ahead of the event, the near collapse of the world banking system in 2007 and a looming global warming catastrophe as well as warning of the emergence of a super rich ruling class throughout much of the capitalist world. Her predictions went completely against the grain of the “conventional wisdom” of the time – but were chillingly prescient.

Discovering the power of people’s history – and why it is feared today By John Pilger

28 November 2013 — John Pilger

England is two countries. One is dominated by London, the other remains in its shadow. When I first arrived from Australia, it seemed no one went north of Watford and those who had emigrated from the north worked hard to change their accents and obscure their origins and learn the mannerisms and codes of the southern comfortable classes. Some would mock the life they had left behind. They were changing classes, or so they thought.
