"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.

"Writing about and interpreting Civil War military operations demands a discerning and critical eye, a rare talent among historians but one that Judkin Browning has in abundance. In this smoothly written and engaging volume, Browning penetrates the fog of war, cracking open the decisive command decisions of the 1862 battles around Richmond, their consequences, and how fatal missteps and brilliant maneuvers were committed by both sides in a campaign that uncorked the revolutionary genie of emancipation from the bottle of Union. There is no hero worshiping or demonizing in this superb study. Browning refuses to reduce the complicated circumstances of war to easy explanations that rest on caricatures of the brilliant Robert E. Lee and the dopey George B. McClellan. Browning had provided us with a much needed reassessment of this pivotal campaign." (Peter S. Carmichael, Fluhrer Professor of History and the Director of the Civil War Institute at Gettysburg College)
"Engaging and thorough, this book never loses sight of key issues in every stage of the Seven Days' Battles. Its judgments on the commanders of both armies are fresh, provocative, and convincing, and with a mastery of critical details and arresting quotations, the narrative is absorbing reading. Quite an achievement!" (Paul D. Escott, Reynolds Professor of History, Wake Forest University)
