James Mumford is a British writer, academic and independent commentator, who is intrigued by the interface of moral questions and political issues. His book, Vexed: Ethics Beyond Political Tribes, was published in March. It tackles political tribalism by rejecting the 'package deals' into which so many positions on moral issues are fatefully bundled on both the Left and the Right. The Guardian hailed it as 'a provocative plea for political nuance.'
