"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

''Oz presents thought-provoking ideas about traitors, a moving lament for the cost of Israeli-Arab conflict, and a heartfelt call for compassion.'' --Publishers Weekly

''Lovely, though with a doleful view of the possibilities of peace, love, and understanding, whether among nations or within households.'' --Kirkus Reviews

''Many-layered, thought-provoking and -- in its love story -- delicate as a chrysalis, this is an old-fashioned novel of ideas that is strikingly and compellingly modern.'' --Guardian (London)

''The novel gives a finely vivid and sympathetic picture of a Jerusalem (and an Israel) that has largely disappeared.'' --New Statesman

''Oz folds a meditation on loyalty and loss into a tender coming-of-age story, and the result is touching and intellectually potent...As engaging and provocative as ever.'' --Booklist (starred review)

''We're given a coming-of-age story, a bittersweet romance, and an allegory for the state of Israel, with the powerful biblical resonance the title suggests.'' --Library Journal

From the Inside Flap

The great new novel by Amos Oz, his first full-length work since the best-selling A Tale of Love and Darkness
 
Jerusalem, 1959. Shmuel Ash, a biblical scholar, is adrift in his young life when he finds work as a caregiver for a brilliant but cantankerous old man named Gershom Wald. There is, however, a third, mysterious presence in his new home. Atalia Abravanel, the daughter of a deceased Zionist leader, a beautiful woman in her forties, entrances young Shmuel even as she keeps him at a distance. Piece by piece, the old Jerusalem stone house, haunted by tragic history and now home to the three misfits and their intricate relationship, reveals its secrets. 

At once an exquisite love story and a coming-of-age novel, Judas offers a surprising perspective on the state of Israel and the biblical tale from which it draws its title. This is Amos Oz’s most powerful novel in decades.
