"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

''Memoir, fiction, and history combine in a stirring portrayal of the world of the first Christians . . . A passionate, digressive, empathetic history of religious rebels and the mystery of faith.'' --Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

''Emmanuel Carrere [is] one of the best known and most innovative French writers.'' --Rachel Donadio, The New York Times

''I left the Catholic Church at thirteen and have not spent much time thinking about religion since then. But Emmanuel Carrere's The Kingdom kept me pinned to its pages until the end. It is personal and rigorous, skeptical and open, casual and profound, and its speculative portrait of Saint Luke, its main character, is as compelling as any fictional life I've read lately.'' --Luc Sante, author of The Other Paris

''My favorite books about Christianity are Augustine's Confessions, Origen's Contra Celsum, and, now, Emmanuel Carrere's The Kingdom. Both a pocket history and a gripping (and surprising!) intellectual self-portrait, I know of nothing else quite like it --and I wish like all hell I'd written it. Carrere is one of our planet's most compelling, inimitable writers, and The Kingdom is, in my view, his greatest book yet.'' --Tom Bissell, author of Apostle: Travels Among the Tombs of the Twelve
