Musician and activist Bragg diagnoses the crisis of accountability in Western democracies in this new series of political pamphlets. He argues that accountability is the antidote to authoritarianism, and that without it, people can never truly be free.

Publisher Description

We live in a world where strongman politics are rising; neo-liberalism has hollowed out political parties; and corporations have undermined democracy. Ordinary voters feel helpless to effect change, resulting in outbreaks of populist anger, and traditional platforms for debate are losing their viability as readers source information online.

In this short and vital polemic, progressive thinker and activist Billy Bragg argues that accountability is the antidote to authoritarianism, and that without it, we can never truly be free. He shows us that Freedom requires three dimensions to function: Liberty, Equality, and Accountability - and the result is a three dimensional space in which freedom can be exercised by all.

Author Biography

Stephen William 'Billy' Bragg is an English singer-songwriter and left-wing activist. His music blends elements of folk music, punk rock and protest songs, with lyrics that span political or romantic themes. His music is heavily centred on bringing about change and getting the younger generation involved in grass-roots activist causes. His book Roots, Radicals and Rockers: How Skiffle Changed the World was shortlisted for the Penderyn Music Book Prize, and was a Rough Trade, Mojo, and FT Book of the Year 2018.

Review

"The Three Dimensions of Freedom, a pocket-size, 100-page "pamphlet" on [Bragg's] favorite subject, personal liberty and the responsibilities of citizenship." -- Boston Globe
