"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

"Ann Massey is a talented writer. Her novel Salvation Jane is an interesting, funny and compassionate read." - Book Buzz

"More to this than meets the eye."- Goodreads

"Reads as smoothly as chick-lit but has a packed political message." - Authorsden

From the Author

I wrote Salvation Jane to draw attention to a disgraceful episode in Australian politics; an orchestrated campaign of persecution that eventually led to a jail term. To put those not familiar with Australian politics in the in the picture, back in the nineties Pauline Hanson, a politically naïve fish and chip shop operator won the seat of Oxley. Her politically incorrect policies toward Aborigines and migrants resonated with ordinary people, people who rarely voice an opinion. Riding a wave of popular sentiment, she started her own political party. 

 Perceived as a threat by the major parties, the powers that be set out to get her in a plot worthy of Francis Underwood of House of Cards, at his most Machiavellian.  She was convicted of electoral fraud and sentenced to nine years in jail. After serving three months, she was released, the sentence quashed, and her name cleared. And yet instead of being viewed as a victim of a terrible injustice, Pauline Hanson who conducted herself with dignity and heroism throughout her ordeal is perceived by many as a figure of fun.

I was amazed there wasn't a backlash against those who conspired to remove Ms Hanson from the political stage and  put it down to the prevailing belief that politics is the province of the well-educated. The inference was clear,if you don't have a degree you  don't have a right to voice an opinion. It got up my nose. I translated MPs' and journalists' contempt for Ms Hanson as an indication that ordinary people do not rate. Salvation Jane was written to thumb my nose at elitist condescension and to applaud a battler willing to "have a go".
