"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Editorial Reviews

Review

“Persuasively illustrates…that Americans tend to project their fears and desires onto Arabs and Muslims rather than searching for common ground…It’s hard to deny the validity of Zogby’s larger argument.

“An informative and readable book that avoids the reductionism, demonology, and victimology that all too often taint treatment of this subject.”—Foreign Affairs

"Jim Zogby has written an essential and enlightening book on Arab opinion. Arab Voices is a must read for anyone who wants to hear true voices from the Arab world."--Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan

"The need for United States engagement in the Middle East has never been greater, and I believe it is essential that ...
