"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


This masterful reconstruction of C. Wright Mills's engagement with Cuba documents how Fidelismo cracked open Cold War liberalism. Those revolutionary days come alive, reminding us again of how the Cuban Revolution shook the world, and of Listen, Yankee's profound impact.--Van Gosse, author of Where the Boys Are: Cuba, Cold War America, and the Making of a New Left

A. Javier Trevino's book succeeds beautifully on several levels. Eminently fair, sober, and judicious, he writes fluidly, sympathetically, and critically about Mills and his jolting and (at the same time) deeply flawed Listen, Yankee. Trevino's criticisms are unstinting, and so is his portrayal of the inflamed, crackpot atmosphere that prevailed in the United States as Mills strained to resist America's anti-Castro panic. This is a scholarly tour de force and a fascinating study.--Todd Gitlin, author of The Sixties: Years of Hope, Days of Rage

A. Javier Trevino provides the definitive account of radical sociologist C. Wright Mills's engagement with the Cuban Revolution. Especially fascinating are the extensive primary sources he reproduces in full. This book will be of interest to anyone wanting to know about the history of sociology or of U.S.-Cuba relations.--Daniel Geary, author of Radical Ambition: C. Wright Mills, the Left, and American Social Thought
