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.

"An excellent, well-edited anthology. It fills the need for a selection of Mary Shelley's works."--M. D. Paley, University of California
"Shows students that Mary Shelley wrote more than Frankenstein. She's on her way to becoming a major author, a rival of her own husband."--William R. Evans, Kean College of New Jersey
"Helps see how powerfully Mary Shelley's work takes its place among that of the canonical male Romantics....Tantalizing."--Nineteenth Century Prose
"Probably the single most valuable resource for anyone wishing to explore further in Mary Shelley's life and work... also contains the novel Mathilda (never published in Mary Shelley's lifetime), an interesting selection of stories, essays, reviews and letters, and an extremely valuable
chronology and bibliography, from which the present writer benefited enormously."--Threepenny Review
"An excellent collection."--Jeff Cass, Laredo Junior College
"It's exciting to have both Frankenstein and Mathilda in a single volume, well-edited and at a reasonable price....Will be very useful and convenient to have so much source material in one volume."--Byron Nelson, West Virginia University
"An excellent text that has been long overdue."--Sister M. Pacelli, Alvernia College
"Useful introduction and chronology...Good selection of tales, reviews and letters....A good text for a graduate course."--Joanna Milbauer Yin, University of Hawaii
