Nick Cohen's new book

By Martin Bright

I’m not sure the world needs any more words about Nick Cohen this week. But just to say that I think What’s Left? is a remarkable piece of work. The best review of the book came from Deborah Orr in the Independent: thoughtful, wise and balanced.

Meanwhile, Cohen has used his blogto respond to areview by our editor John Kampfner.

He writes: “There’s a stinker from my editor at the New Statesman here which says I’m so nasty about the Left because I come from the far Left. (In fact I am not now nor have I ever been a member of any party except the Labour Party.) As is becoming a tradition with New Statesman editors, he doesn’t take on my arguments.

“Paul Anderson deals better than I can with such myopia here.
