Who Are We Now? AudioBook Summary

In this compelling and essential audiobook, Jason Cowley, editor-in-chief of the New Statesman, examines contemporary England through a handful of the key news stories of recent times to reveal what they tell us about the state of the nation and to answer the question: ‘Who are we now?’

Spanning the years since the election of Tony Blair’s New Labour government to the aftermath of the COVID pandemic, the audiobook investigates how England has changed and how those changes have affected us. Cowley weaves together the seemingly disparate stories of the Chinese cockle-pickers who drowned in Morecambe Bay, the East End Imam who was tested during a summer of terror, the pensioner who campaigned against the closure of her GP’s surgery and Gareth Southgate’s transformation of English football culture and embrace of progressive patriotism. And in doing so, he shows the common threads that unite them, whether it is attitudes to class, nation, identity, belonging, immigration or religion.
