'Culture,' wrote Raymond Williams, and lsquo;is one of the most complicated words in the English language. and rsquo; Ironically, the most important British writer on culture in the post-war period is also one of the most poorly digested among today and rsquo;s readers. Originally conceived as the sequel to his 1961 The Long Revolution, Williams' 1983 title Towards 2000 has been unfairly classified as a period piece. With the permission of the Williams Estate, the book has been re-entitled A Short Counter-Revolution and ndash; Towards 2000 Revisited, with noted Williams expert Jim McGuigan adding a chapter that updates the original with a survey of developments since its publication, parA­ticularly concerning the impact of neoliberalism, a phenomenon sighted early by Raymond Williams and named and lsquo;Plan X and rsquo;.In this new edition, Jim McGuigan makes a totally convincing case to read the book as a contemporary classic. It remains an indispensable guide to: Power and Inequality Class Politics Post-industrial society Globalization The crisis in democracy Thoroughly edited, and imaginatively updated, the book speaks from the grave to illuminate the present in remarkable, decisive ways.

Towards 2000
A Short Counter-Revolution (Jim McGuigan)
The Analysis Reconsidered
The Analysis Extended
Resources for a Journey of Hope

Raymond Williams: A Short Counter-Revolution amply demonstrates the continuing relevance of Williams and rsquo;s analysis, from the early 1980s, to our current situation; after thirty years of neoliberalism his insights still read as freshly and as incisively as they first did. Jim McGuigan and rsquo;s new chapter explicitly extends the lines of continuity from then to now, in a persuasive and at times appropriately critical way. Williams and rsquo;s concluding chapter, and lsquo;Resources for a Journey of Hope and rsquo; remains as inspiring, and as necessary, as ever. Simon Dentith t's great that Towards 2000 is revisited. Jim McGuigan's preface to this edition and his remarkable up-dating chapter A Short Counter Revolution draw upon a formidable range of reference to illustrate why this work is as fresh and insightful today as it was 30 years ago.'
