Product description

Review

A useful and breakneck tour of the perils of modernity.

"A biting critique of American-style capitalism as a one-size fits-all solution for the world s problems, destined to spread everywhere." "The Chronicle of Higher Education"
"Chock-full of interesting observations and stimulating insights." Danny Postel, "The Nation"
"Smart, learned, lucid." "Kirkus Review"
"A useful and breakneck tour of the perils of modernity." "The Toronto Globe and Mail"
" --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Book Description

Al Qaeda and What It Means to be Modern by John Gray is a powerful book, setting to rest the mistaken belief that we are all, more or less, becoming modern, and that as we become modern we will become more alike, more familiar and more reasonable. Nothing, Gray explains, could be further from the truth.
