Cranks and Revolutions

by Mark Gold
£9.95   paperback  Green Print (2008)

Cranks and Revolutions by Mark Gold Cranks and Revolutions tells the story of two brothers from a family for whom protest has always been a way of life. Brought up in the 1960s on CND marches, fund raising events for the victims of the Nigeria-Biafra civil war and rescuing oiled sea birds, the Bob Dylan inspired Rob goes off to university to be part of the hippy generation, campaigning passionately against the Vietnam War and apartheid.
 
But while Rob settles down to marriage, children and career, it is his younger brother who sets out to maintain the family tradition. Against an unsympathetic backdrop of Thatcher's and Blair's Britain, Tom Moore ends up working for an animal protection organisation and trying to persuade the world to become peace-loving vegans.
 
Cranks and Revolutions is a light-hearted drama documentary of the last fifty years of radical protest in the UK. It is an irreverent, funny and sympathetic alternative political history, full of quirky and amusing events and characters.
 
Mark Gold is the author of five previous non-fiction books, including the award winning Living Without Cruelty. This is his first novel. He also works for Animal Aid and Citizens Advice. He lives in Devon.
