Dismembered: How the Attack on the State Harms Us All

by Polly Toynbee & David Walker
£9.99   paperback  Guardian Faber Publishing (2017)

Dismembered: How the Attack on the State Harms Us All by Polly Toynbee & David Walker What is the state? And what's it ever done for you? More than you think.
 
The state houses us, educates us, employs us, protects us on the street and in the wider world. It binds us all together. And it's under threat.
 
Toynbee and Walker travelled round Great Britain gathering the voices of the people who make up the state: the nurses and patients, teachers and parents, policemen and civilians. The protectors and the protected. The story they tell is one of dismemberment, across our nation state. Of a mutilated NHS, a crippled police force, divided schools and a vulnerable military. And this attack on the state is an attack on each and every one of us.
 
Dismembered is a ruthless dissection of what is happening to our country, who is responsible, and how we can stop it. Before it's too late.
 
From the bestselling authors of Cameron's Coup comes a devastating critique of our current government.
