Synopsis

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER A Times and Sunday Times Book of the Year Updated with a new afterword by the author 'Douglas Murray fights the good fight for freedom of speech ... A truthful look at today's most divisive issues' - Jordan B. Peterson '[Murray's] latest book is beyond brilliant and should be read, must be read, by everyone' - Richard Dawkins Are we living through the great derangement of our times? In The Madness of Crowds Douglas Murray investigates the dangers of 'woke' culture and the rise of identity politics. In lively, razor-sharp prose he examines the most controversial issues of our moment: sexuality, gender, technology and race, with interludes on the Marxist foundations of 'wokeness', the impact of tech and how, in an increasingly online culture, we must relearn the ability to forgive. One of the few writers who dares to counter the prevailing view and question the dramatic changes in our society - from gender reassignment for children to the impact of transgender rights on women - Murray's penetrating book, now published with a new afterword taking account of the book's reception and responding to the worldwide Black Lives Matter protests, clears a path of sanity through the fog of our modern predicament.

About the Publisher

Bloomsbury Continuum

Bloomsbury Continuum

Bloomsbury Continuum is the continuation and expansion of Continuum’s trade publishing, tucked in happily under the Bloomsbury publishing umbrella. We are already benefiting from the enormous sales and marketing strengths of a much larger publishing house. We publish adult non- fiction, covering areas such as history, politics, philosophy, current affairs, religion, travel and biography. Our aim is to publish serious books for the widest audience possible. Recent bestsellers include: Jonathan Aitken’s biography: Margaret Thatcher – Power and Personality Pope Francis by Paul Vallely and The Wit and Wisdom of Boris Johnson by Harry Mount. All these have had major serial deals in the national press. We are proud to have published and to continue to publish authors of the stature of Sir Michael Howard, former Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, Eamon Duffy, Christopher Booker, Roger Scruton, Timothy Radcliffe, Frank Furedi and A.C. Grayling. And now we have added a new generation of talented young writers, including Harry Mount, David Horspoool, Miles Hollingworth, Christopher Howse and John Waters, enfant terrible of the Irish media.
