Details: Product Description Why do young men and women from the West join an extremist organization like ISIS? Why are we seeing the rise of aggressive right-wing politics in countries such as India, Turkey and USA, the expansion of Islamist terror, massacres in Western metropolises, wars in the Middle East? And in what way is the politics of anger and violence connected? In this outstanding book, Pankaj Mishra argues that the roots of our age of anger lie in the great economic and political revolutions of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries in Europe and the traumatic social and political changes they brought. Boldly argued and with a canvas that stretches from Savarkar in India to Rousseau in France, Age of Anger is a must-read to understand the world today.
