Review

'Brilliant, frightening, devastating' -- John Banville, Guardian

'Causes vertigo when it does not cause outrage' -- Sunday Times

'Exhilarating, invigorating'
-- Literary Review

'Rollicking, bone-crunching' -- New Statesman

'Savage. Gray raises profound doubts about the conventional "plot" of modern history'
-- Financial Times

'The closest thing we have to a window-smashing French intellectual' -- Andrew Marr

'Wise, furious and informative' -- A.S. Byatt

Synopsis

Our conventional view of history and human progress is wrong. It is founded on a pernicious myth of an achievable utopia that in the last century alone caused the murder of tens of millions. In "Black Mass" John Gray tears down the religious, political and secular beliefs that we insist are fundamental to the human project and shows us how a misplaced faith in our ability to improve the world has actually made it far worse.
