The Madness of Crowds

By Douglas Murray


I approached this book with a healthy sense of scepticism that it would not be much more than a neocon rant, or something else to that effect.

Unfortunately, it is instead the list of everything that is wrong with modern societal and political discourse. All the mines in the metaphorical minefield were underfoot – gender, feminism, race, sexuality, culture, religion, and identity &c, and all the interplays and tensions that exist between them exposed and brought in for questioning.

This will be a book to revisit at the end of this decade, hopefully to see what progress instead of regression we’ve managed to make.
