Editorial Reviews

Review

Brilliant, mind-altering...Everyone should read this astonishing book -- David Runciman * Guardian * A supremely important book. To have command of so much research, spread across so many different fields, is a masterly achievement. Pinker convincingly demonstrates that there has been a dramatic decline in violence, and he is persuasive about the causes of that decline -- Peter Singer * New York Times * [A] sweeping new review of the history of human violence...[Pinker has] the kind of academic superbrain that can translate otherwise impenetrable statistics into a meaningful narrative of human behaviour...impeccable scholarship -- Tony Allen-Mills * Sunday Times * Written in Pinker's distinctively entertaining and clear personal style...a marvellous synthesis of science, history and storytelling -- Clive Cookson * Financial Times * A salutary reality-check...Better Angels is itself a great liberal landmark -- Marek Kohn * Independent * Pinker's scholarhsip is astounding...flawless...masterful -- Joanna Bourke * The Times * Selected by the New York Times as one of the 100 Notable Books of 2011 * New York Times *
