No one was more prescient about the economic malaise and popular resentment that has hit the United States than Ed Luce in his previous book, Time to Start Thinking. His new book, Retreat of Western Liberalism, broadens that picture to cover the Western world. It is a must read for anyone trying to make sense of the waves of populism and nationalism we face today — Liaquat Ahamed
Edward Luce provides a terrifying view of the challenges facing the West. We have to hope that his prophecies are self denying - something that is more likely if his penetrating analysis gets the wide attention it richly deserves — Lawrence Summers
A knowledgeable tour through the unmapped terrain in which Western politicians and governments must now operate — The Economist
Luce is at his best writing about America, on which his knowledge is voluminous . . . his writing has a vigour and sweep all too absent in the deadly prose of social scientists; and he has identified a fundamental question facing democracies — Financial Times
Beautifully written — The Times
[A] brisk, pointed and fascinating book . . . is far more than a disappointed liberal's angry tirade. His achievement is to put the rise of antiestablishment populism in a broader global economic context — Literary Review
An illuminating book — Will Hutton, Observer
[A] brilliant book — Nick Timothy, Telegraph
