Product description

Review

As the official culture of politics limps from scandal to corruption, Hind turns to the only thing that can save democracy: the people. Dan Hind has produced one of those rare books that transcend the world of discourse and become essential levers of historical change. --David Miller, co-author of A Century of Spin and professor of sociology at the University of Strathclyde

If there is a future to look forward to, it will come from the invigorated public domain pictured by Dan Hind … This is a handbook for a very modern liberation struggle. Buy it and help set yourself free. --Andrew Simms, Policy Director, New Economics Foundation and author of Tescopoly

Praise for The Threat to Reason: Fine, lucid and sharp ... well written and worth reading before the next wave of western tanks crosses a border, somewhere in the Middle East. - Rod Liddle, The Sunday Times ... Hind is by no means blind to the stupidity and hypocrisy of the religious right, but he notices that their opponents too often fight them on the wrong battlefields. - Nicholas Lezard, Guardian ... In this elegant polemical essay, Dan Hind rightly quibbles with the supposedly Manichean tussle between the guarantors of the Enlightenment in the West and everyone else. - James Harkin, Independent ... A thoughtful polemic. --Financial Times

About the Author

DAN HIND was a publisher for ten years. In 2009 he left the industry to develop a program of media reform centered around public commissioning. His journalism has appeared in the Guardian, New Scientist, Lobster and the Times Literary Supplement. His first book, The Threat to Reason, was published by Verso in 2007.
