The Extreme Centre: A Warning
The Extreme Centre: A Warning is a 2015 book by British-Pakistani writer, journalist, political activist and historian Tariq Ali.
The book is a criticism of the politics of the “indistinguishable political elite” in the United Kingdom, and their devotion to capitalism. The book analyses what Ali sees as the failure of the European Union and NATO, political corruption in Westminster and the dominance of the American Empire.
In the Socialist Review the book was praised while in the Financial Times the book was criticised as “conspiratorial” and an “examination of the frustrations of the radical left”. Ali was profiled and the book was previewed in The Guardian.
