Waterstones Says

The conservative intellectual even liberals admire, Douglas Murray follows his provocative The Strange Death of Europe with this penetrating examination of four ideological totems of modern Western society; sexuality, gender, technology and race. Bracing and rational, The Madness of Crowds is another elegantly argued polemic from a very well informed commentator.

In his devastating new book The Madness of Crowds, Douglas Murray examines the twenty-first century's most divisive issues: sexuality, gender, technology and race. He reveals the astonishing new culture wars playing out in our workplaces, universities, schools and homes in the names of social justice, identity politics and 'intersectionality'.

We are living through a postmodern era in which the grand narratives of religion and political ideology have collapsed. In their place have emerged a crusading desire to right perceived wrongs and a weaponization of identity, both accelerated by the new forms of social and news media. Narrow sets of interests now dominate the agenda as society becomes more and more tribal - and, as Murray shows, the casualties are mounting.

Readers of all political persuasions cannot afford to ignore Murray's masterfully argued and fiercely provocative book, in which he seeks to inject some sense into the discussion around this generation's most complicated issues. He ends with an impassioned call for free speech, shared common values and sanity in an age of mass hysteria.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Simply brilliant. Reading it to the end, I felt as though I'd just drawn my first full breath in years. At a moment of collective madness, there is nothing more refreshing - or, indeed, provocative - than sanity.' - Sam Harris, author of five New York Times bestsellers and host of the Making Sense podcast. 

'Whether one agrees with him or not, Douglas Murray is one of the most important public intellectuals today.' - Bernard-Henri Levy

“Thought Provoking!”

Thanks to the publisher Bloomsbury for sending me a review copy. I was a bit of a different read for me but thought it was though-provoking and enjoyed it right up to the end. May read his others stuff after this!

“Oxygen for our dying discourse”

An outstandingly honest, brave and intelligent book. A welcome riposte to the hypocrisy of liberalism, suffocating political correctness and absurd intersectionality. Written in a light and accessible tone but... More

“A great read which made me think!”

A well reasoned argument for thinking issues through. Even if you don’t agree with his conclusions it’s a great read and highlights how as a society we accept everything and go with the crowd who also haven’t thought... More
