As we prepare for a new government we welcome back two of our finest commentators to deliver their verdict on the Conservative led coalition. Written with their trademark precision and passion, Toynbee and Walker reveal how in four short years a party that failed to win a Commons majority has been devastatingly effective. Blending polls and statistics with moving human stories from Taunton to Teesside, Sydenham to Sheffield, Cameron’s Coup shows the alarming reversal in decades of social progress. As Toynbee and Walker argue, it has been nothing short of a revolution. And they ask the pressing question: are these changes irrevocable?

This is essential reading for anyone who cares about their country.

Chaired by Brian Meechan.
