The Establishment And How They Get Away with it

The Establishment And How They Get Away with it

Author: Owen Jones Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/03/2015

In The Establishment Owen Jones, author of the international bestseller Chavs, offers a biting critique of the British Establishment and a passionate plea for democracy. Behind our democracy lurks a powerful but unaccountable network of people who wield massive power and reap huge profits in the process. In exposing this shadowy and complex system that dominates our lives, Owen Jones sets out on a journey into the heart of our Establishment, from the lobbies of Westminster to the newsrooms, boardrooms and trading rooms of Fleet Street and the City. Exposing the revolving doors that link these worlds, and the vested interests that bind them together, Jones shows how, in claiming to work on our behalf, the people at the top are doing precisely the opposite. In fact, they represent the biggest threat to our democracy today - and it is time they were challenged. Owen Jones was born in Sheffield, grew up in Stockport, and studied history at Oxford.

The Grammar of Ornament A Visual Reference of Form and Colour in Architecture and the Decorative Arts - The complete and unabridged full-color edition

Author: Owen Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 31/07/2018

The complete and unabridged full-color edition First published in 1856, The Grammar of Ornament remains a design classic. Its inspiration came from pioneering British architect and designer Owen Jones (1809-1874), who produced a comprehensive design treatise for the machine age, lavishly illustrated in vivid chromolithographic color. Jones made detailed observations of decorative arts on his travels in Europe, the Middle East, and in his native London, where he studied objects on display at the Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations in 1851 and at local museums. His aim was to improve the quality of Western design by changing the habits of Victorian designers, who indiscriminately mixed elements from a wide variety of sources. Jones's resulting study is a comprehensive analysis of styles of ornamental design, presenting key examples ranging from Maori tattoos, Egyptian columns, and Greek borders to Byzantine mosaic, Indian embroidery, and Elizabethan carvings. At once splendidly Victorian and insistently modern, The Grammar of Ornament celebrates objects of beauty from across time periods and continents, and remains an indispensable sourcebook today.

May Day Manifesto 1968

May Day Manifesto 1968

Author: Owen Jones Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/05/2018

The original publication of the May Day Manifesto in 1967 collected together the most influential radical voices of the era. Among the seventy signatories were Raymond Williams, E. P. Thompson, Stuart Hall, Iris Murdoch, Terry Eagleton, Ralph Miliband and R. D. Laing. The manifesto set out a new agenda for socialist Britain, in the aftermath of the failure of postwar labours. Urgently relevant to the current arguments about the crisis of austerity, the burden of empire and the failures to control rampant capitalism, it offers a complete road map to a brighter future. Covering the purpose of the state and how finance and empire are twinned, the importance of a planned economy for all, the role of Britain in the world, the manifesto hoped to inspire change and a fairer society. It is a bold reminder that there are alternatives to the current situation, and that alternative policies can make a difference.

Chavs The Demonization of the Working Class

Chavs The Demonization of the Working Class

Author: Owen Jones Format: Paperback Release Date: 29/03/2016

In modern Britain, the working class has become an object of fear and ridicule. From Little Britain's Vicky Pollard to the demonization of Jade Goody, media and politicians alike dismiss as feckless, criminalized and ignorant a vast, underprivileged swathe of society whose members have become stereotyped by one, hate-filled word: chavs. In this acclaimed investigation, Owen Jones explores how the working class has gone from 'salt of the earth' to 'scum of the earth.' Exposing the ignorance and prejudice at the heart of the chav caricature, he portrays a far more complex reality. The chav stereotype, he argues, is used by governments as a convenient fig leaf to avoid genuine engagement with social and economic problems and to justify widening inequality. When Chavs was first published in 2011 it opened up the discussion of class in Britain. Then, in the public debate after the riots of that summer, Owen Jones's thesis was proved right - the working class were the scapegoats for everything that was wrong with Britain. This new edition includes a new chapter, reflecting on the overwhelming response to the book and the situation in Britain today.

Author: Owen Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 29/02/2016

First published in 1856, The Grammar of Ornament remains a design classic. As Owen Jones, its creator, admired the array of ornament he encountered on his global travels, so his distaste grew for mongrel design. The result was the Grammar. Each illustration is allotted its place within a cultural context and illuminated in this new edition by a contemporary commentary.

Tiger Lily of Bangkok

Tiger Lily of Bangkok

Author: Owen Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 19/01/2014

Lily had always liked to please adults. She sought attention and adulation, as all children do, but one man, her 'uncle', a friend of the family, wanted too much from Lily even when she was just eleven years old. It took her two years to figure out how to stop him and that only came about because of a chance occurrence in the playground at school. When that ordeal was over, so was Lily's childhood at the tender age of thirteen, but she was able to use the compensation she received to go to university in Bangkok. It was to change her life again and within a year, it had changed the lives of many people and shocked Bangkok society. You will empathises with Lily and maybe even her parents, but you may not agree with her methods of gaining revenge on the people who hurt her - mankind!

Eternal Plan - Revealed

Eternal Plan - Revealed

Author: Owen Jones, Colin Jones Format: eBook Release Date: 12/03/2013

The writings in this book were dictated to my father, Colin Jones of Barry, South Wales, by his spirit guides during the last 40 years of his life. They are about natural law, God's law or karma and every day thoughts and problems and everyone should find them relevant to his or her life, whatever age or of whatever religious persuasion the reader may be. Colin Jones died on his 72nd. birthday in 2003, so it has taken me nine years to put this book together from the loose pages he gave me to work with. He was a spiritualist medium and a healer and was in constant active contact with his spirit guides, who often signed their work. In the original papers, it is easy to distinguish different styles of handwriting, as my father usually wrote them with his eyes shut. They are a fascinating insight into God's Eternal Plan and lessons on how everyone should be living their life.
