Summary

Bloomsbury presents Against the Tide by Roger Scruton and Mark Dooley, read by Kris Dyer.

The definitive edition of the late Sir Roger Scruton's philosophical and political essays and reviews, now collected in one volume, edited by Mark Dooley.

The philosopher Roger Scruton was the leading conservative thinker of the post-war years. In this audiobook are assembled the very best of his essays and commentaries, arranged thematically. The selection has been made and edited by Mark Dooley, Scruton’s literary executor.

Throughout this collection, Scruton proves himself to be at his most scintillating and controversial. He writes with passion and conviction about such varied topics as feminism, racism, fascism, Tony Blair, Jeremy Corbyn and Donald Trump and takes aim at those who defy conservative common sense in favour of liberal falsehoods.

This audiobook shows Scruton at his most brilliant and demonstrates how his influence will remain strong and enduring.

Extremely Irritating Narrator

If you want to listen to C3PO doing an impression of C3PO, then I imagine you’ll enjoy this recording a lot. If not, don’t bother!
