Reviews

"'This vitally important book... packs a remarkable amount (politics, science, culture, education, post-modernism) into its 150-odd pages and, true to its Enlightenment loyalties, couches an explosive argument in admirably temperate terms.' Terry Eagleton, New Statesman 'The strength of this book lies in Furedi's ability to make new connections, and to use one social phenomenon to cast light on another.' Roger Scruton, The Times"
