"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

Unknown

"We are reminded as we mark the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act that it is an act bought in blood, especially the blood of Jimmie Lee Jackson and Rev. James Reeb. The book is critical... Everyone must read it." (Melissa Harris-Perry MSNBC)

"In Jimmie Lee and James, Steve Fiffer and Adar Cohen bring to life a watershed moment in our nation's history. This is a must-read for all who care about the fight for civil rights and the right to vote, then and now." (Julian Bond, NAACP Chairman Emeritus )

"This is the untold, true story behind the historic 1965 voting rights march from Selma to Montgomery. A well-written, well-reported page-turner about our collective struggle for equality and justice . . . hopefully the last chapter in the American Revolution." (Morris Dees, Founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center )

"Jimmie Lee and James does an excellent job of chronicling a truly American movement. As the book so clearly explains, this was a struggle led by African Americans, but white Americans played a major role. Jews and other denominations added institutional support from every part of America. We suffered and sometimes died together." (Civil rights activist, Rev. C. T. Vivian )
