Reviews

"As stylistically gratifying as he is intellectually lucid,Bruckner presents a clear alternative to the accepted thought onone of this era's hottest topics." Publishers Weekly "A sizzling new polemic against apocalypticenvironmentalism." San Francisco Chronicle "The best tonic for stale science communications I ve read ina while." Cool Green Science "Pascal Bruckner is a brilliant writer astute, learned,broad-ranging, mordant, sometimes mischievous, and sometimesprophetic. He is one of the handful of writers around the world whodefine the intellectual history of our time." Paul Berman, author of The Flight of theIntellectuals "With his usual verve and eloquence, in The Fanaticism of theApocalypse Pascal Bruckner offers a bracing and provocativecritique of an ever-more-pervasive and fanatical Green politics andideology. For Bruckner, the ecological catastrophism the latterpromotes constitutes less a salutary call to action than a returnto the politics of guilt encouraged by exhausted ideologies,religions, and religious institutions, the Catholic Church inparticular. This book will please some and consternate others, butits intelligence and originality make it an important book for ourtimes." Richard Golsan, Texas A&M University "For anyone who has had enough of being harangued forsingle-handedly destroying the planet for future generations,Pascal Bruckner s new book will come as a welcome breath offresh and unpolluted air."
