Take Back the Past: Myths of the Twentieth Century. That ultimate triumph was not without dust or heat. This book is about that heat and that dust, including a critical tradition that rashly abdicated all truth-claims and an intelligentsia reluctant to admit it had once put faith and hope in exterminatory dictators in Russia, Germany and China. The Mitford sisters, who had done just that, were cheerfully trivialised into a musical dubbed La Triviata.

In this enjoyably iconoclastic book, George Watson discusses some of the great heresies of the twentieth century, and the cultural heretics who espoused them, often with surprising results. Watson forces us to question various long-cherished political and intellectual assumptions in his witty and conversational style. He touches entertainingly upon subjects as diverse as literary theory (experimental fiction is often the last resort of those who have nothing to say), and the unoriginal conformism of teenage Marxists (incapable of actually reading Marx, as he is too boring).
