Abstract

Multinational oil corporations trumpet their green credentials. Shadowy billionaires orchestrate ‘grassroots’ political movements. Public-spending cuts target the poor, but supposedly ‘give power to the people’. To Eliane Glaser, these are all signs of the maddeningly surreal gap between appearance and reality in modern life. We are living in a looking-glass world in which reality is spun and crude vested interests are cloaked in seductive disguises. Get Real is a passionate and entertaining guide to decoding the delusions we live by. Busting the jargon and unravelling the spin, it reveals the secrets behind modern life that we were never supposed to know.
