Book Name:- Age of Anger: A History of the Present
Book Author:- Pankaj Mishra
Why do young women and men from the West join an extremist organization like ISIS? Why are we seeing the rise of aggressive right-wing politics in countries such as Turkey, India, and USA, the expansion of Islamist terror, massacres in Western metropolises, wars in the Middle East? And in what way is the politics of violence and anger connected?
In this outstanding book Age of Anger: A History of the Present, author Pankaj Mishra argues that the roots of our age of anger lie in the great political and economic revolutions of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries in Europe and the traumatic political and social 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.
