Seeking to understand the great wave of paranoid hatreds that have become part of our politics, of our media, our nations and our communities Pankaj Mishra casts back to the Eighteenth Century and shows that as the world became modern, those who were unable to enjoy its promises of freedom, stability, and prosperity were increasingly susceptible to demagogues. Today, just as then, the wide embrace of mass politics and technology and the pursuit of wealth and individualism have cast many more billions adrift in a demoralised world, uprooted from tradition but still far from modernity. Making startling connections and comparisons, Mishra presents an urgent argument and a warning.
