In The Politburo Has Decided That You Are Unwell, John Waters revisits his principal themes from a most turbulent decade in Ireland and the world. The Politburo Has Decided That You Are Unwell is a fascinating, amusing, hard-hitting and insightful analysis of contemporary Irish society from one of its most original and outspoken commentators.
About the Author
Through the 1990s and into the 21st century, John Waters has been a dissident voice writing in his weekly column for The Irish Times, invariably confronting the conventional wisdom on issues ranging from fatherhood and the official denial of the rights of parents and children, to the absurdity of Ireland's seemingly endless tribunals, to the misunderstood meaning of the life of Charles Haughey. In that time, his chief stock-in-trade has been the elegant representation of common sense in the face of ideology, received thinking and self-serving cant. His first book for seven years contains some of his most controversial and highly-charged pieces from The Irish Times and elsewhere.
