Being in Time
Gilad Atzmon

ISBN 9781911072201 • paperback • $15.00

TIMELY ANALYSIS OF POST-TRUMP, POST-BREXIT ERA

“Atzmon's book Being in Time is a brilliant and substantive critique of identity politics and Jewish political ideology and culture. It is an essential read for understanding and confronting authoritarianism of all stripes and colors.”
—James Petras Bartle, emeritus professor, Binghamton University

The events of 2016 – the UK vote to leave the EU, and the US Presidential Election – broke the mold which shaped ideas of democracy, politics and social identity. In this book, Gilad Atzmon argues that Left and Right have become indistinguishable and meaningless in the post-political universe in which we now live, and much of humanity has been reduced to serving the interests of big money and oligarchies. The freedom to think openly is now just a distant memory. Our Western liberal “utopia” has turned into an Orwellian catastrophe, and the people are left bewildered and impoverished, and out in the cold.

Being in Time is a courageous attempt to grasp the intellectual developments that led towards the current dystopia. The book delves into the bankruptcy of the ideological grand narratives. It explores the colossal failure of the media, academia and politics to detect and address the events that led us towards destitution. It identifies the ideologies that have planted Identitarian politics and the tyranny of political correctness in our midst. We, the people, have been demoted into mere audience in a Greek tragedy that happens to be the story of our own destruction. The time is ripe to understand it all.

Being in Time suggests that “after politics” is a tale of the decisive victory of one elite. Gilad Atzmon has managed to dissect the ethos, the strategy and the culture that drive this invincible elite.

Gilad Atzmon is an internationally acclaimed jazz artist and composer, a member of the Blockheads, and fronts the Orient House Ensemble. His recent book The Wandering Who? A Study of Jewish Identity Politics was translated into more than ten languages. Gilad is a political commentator his essays are published widely and in many languages. He lives in London.
