"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


"This book provides an important contribution to the study of immigration in Europe. The fast-growing challenge of immigration has resulted in a variety of anti-immigrant outcomes across the countries of Europe. Rafaela Dancygier makes an important distinction between 'immigrant-native' and 'immigrant-state' conflict, and she develops a clear, nuanced, and persuasive argument about the effects of economic scarcity and immigrant electoral strength on the type of conflict that emerges. She complements her intensive case study of the United Kingdom with wide-ranging comparisons, thus allowing for informed and path-breaking conclusions that apply to the rest of Europe as well."
-Marc Morjé Howard, Georgetown University

"In this immaculately researched book, Rafaela Dancygier finally brings systematic data on the political and social conflicts over immigration in Europe. With methodological precision, she identifies the conditions that lead to mobilized conflict, and if there is such conflict whether it pits natives against immigrants or immigrants against state authorities. Readers will be challenged by Dancygier's parsimonious theory focusing on not only economic preconditions but political representation and in which the religious and cultural variables, favored by Islamophobes and other polemicists, have no explanatory power."
-David Laitin, Stanford University

"Dancygier's book contributes to but ultimately transcends the now vast scholarship on immigrant incorporation, native-immigrant social/political relations, the determinants of immigrant-related violence and conflict, and the local politics of immigration in addressing the causes and manifestations of immigrant-related conflict across countries and across time. Its nested analysis, utilization of both quantitative and qualitative methods, and imaginative research design offer a model for how good social science is conducted."
-Anthony M. Messina, Trinity College

"Rafaela Dancygier has written the best book I've ever seen on immigration and conflict. She expertly shows the way in which political incentives and local competition for resources combine to explain conflict in Europe, but the theory could easily be extended to other regions and countries."
-Steven Wilkinson, Yale University

"One of the great virtues of Immigration and Conflict in Europe by Rafaela M. Dancygier is that she ventures systematically where few have gone before, to the local level, to analyze immigrant conflict with both native populations and state authorities... Thus, this is a rich and important contribution to comparative analysis in a number of different ways." - Martin A. Schain, New York University, Comparative Politics

Book Description

Why do we observe clashes between immigrants and natives and between immigrants and state actors in some locations but not in others? As it addresses this question, Immigration and Conflict in Europe presents a wealth of qualitative and quantitative materials on immigrant conflict in Great Britain, Germany, and France from the postwar years until the beginning of the twenty-first century. Focusing on immigrant-native and immigrant-state conflict and violence in cities and towns, the book argues for the importance of economic and electoral forces in determining patterns of conflict and calm.
