"The Disrespect Agenda" is a plea for the kind of clear thinking and for the love of liberty that typified the rise of Britain in the Hanoverian period.

Lincoln Allison argues that the constant harping on about 'respect' in the contemporary world - by governments, gangsters and 'community' leaders - is the tip of an iceberg of confusion and moral weakness.

Free and responsible human beings should not crave respect, and should bestow it only cautiously, after stringent tests and never as a matter of right.

The author suggests an agenda of targets for sceptical disrespect, including artists, educationalists, humanists and politicians.
