The Leaderless Revolution

How ordinary people will take power and change politics in the 21st century

In his new book The Leaderless Revolution, former diplomat Carne Ross offers a compelling new vision of what’s wrong with contemporary politics and how to put it right. In a bold and original analysis of world affairs today, Ross develops a unique new philosophy of political action and personal liberation, drawing on traditions of anarchism and cosmopolitanism, as well as his own personal experience of political crisis and conflict.

Carne Ross is a former British diplomat, author and journalist. Having resigned from the British foreign service after giving secret testimony to an official inquiry into the Iraq war, he then set up the world's first independent diplomatic advisory group, Independent Diplomat, which advises marginalised countries and groups around the world. His book, The Leaderless Revolution: How Ordinary People Will Take Power And Change Politics in the 21st Century, is published by Simon & Schuster on 1st September.
