"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Jefferys writes in the first person - combining a subjective realism with a sense of the narrator's discontent at his Australian prospects with a dispassionate assessment of possible alterntives. It is an effective strategy. Having followed Smith (via London and his disillusioned sister) to East Berlin, where he settles down with Kathrin, the reader is pre-disposed to accept that Smith has made thoughtful choices, confirmed by success and hapiness. Then, as the writing on the wall gets bigger and brighter during the 1980s, Smith finds that he cannot, will not, accept the need for complete overthrow of a system that has enabled his own transition from mechanical to intellectual. His inability to see beyond his own situation turns him into a sitting duck for the Stasi. When he finally agrees to sell up and sell out to please his wife, he returns to Australia almost as a latter-day prisoner of his own disillusioned idealism. Campbell Jeffreys' travel writing is of the non-executive variety and so is his book, capturing a GDR that was stronger on the politics of equality than the privilege of aesthetics. The novel opens a cupboard of no-frills narrative skill that is deliberately bare, furnishing it with a view of East." Eve Lucas "Exberliner" --..
