Very Good in Very Good jacket. 0002170728 Dust jacket condition: Very Good. This Election year's Bedside Guardian may not induce sweet dreams. Salman Rushdie and others look on appalled at the prospect of five more years of going to the dogs'. Tony Benn, interviewed by Terry Coleman, thinks the country 'is going to descend into a major tragedy', while Neu Kinnock is caught, two months before the debacle, believing still that 'the one great asset of the Labour Party is the people's fear of Mrs Thatcher'. Polly Toynbee finds business booming in pawn shops and on the grouse moors; Ann Shearer spends a night with the homeless youngsters who sleep rough in St James's Park; John Cunningham talks to unemployed steel-workers in Scunthorpe. Reports from overseas are hardly more cheery: Martin Walker on a Right turn on the Left Bank, for example, and Linda Blandford and W. J. Weatherby on hunger in New York, and the 'red light recession'. In the Texas Panhandle, W. L. Webb visits the town where they make the nuclear warheads for Greenham Common. Meanwhile, Jill Tweedie, Brenda Polan and Michael Billington sample a week of life in Moscow, and Malcolm Muggeridge remembers reporting Stalin's liquidation of the kulaks for the Manchester Guardian fifty years ago. Even in such a year, the Guardian can't let gloom be unconfined: see Nancy Banks-Smith on zoos and Dr Johnson, and a leader-writer's meditation on the sickening success of Fleet Street's Royal soap opera, and the GPO buffer's latest proud invention, the 3^p stamp. Frank Keating brings up the rear with a profile of Bob Willis, exponent of 'probably the worst shot to have been regularly displayed in any area of Test match cricket'. Alan Goren wrote of last year's edition: 'The Guardian is so well written that the only way of doing justice to its sheer creative clout is to take it in just this form: between hard covers and soft sheets.
