In 1979 two events occurred that would shape the next 25 years - the arrival of Margaret Thatcher and the restoration in Iran, by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, of a regime that had last existed over 1,300 years before. Between them they succeeded in bringing the twentieth century to a premature close.  It was as if the Enlightenment had never happened. The author explores the post-political era and the rise in relativism, superstition and emotional hysteria over the past quarter of the century.  From UFO scares to dotcom mania, his hilarious and gloriously impassioned polemic describes a period in the world's history when everything began to stop making sense.
