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.
George’s first “Lugano Report” was published in 1999 and translated into 15 languages. “How to win the Class War”, is its sequel and brings the story up to date.
