Book Description
================
In his devastating new book The Madness of Crowds, Douglas Murray examines the 21st centuryÆs most divisive issues: sexuality, gender, technology and race. He reveals the astonishing new culture wars playing out in our workplaces, universities, schools and homes in the names of social justice, identity politics and æintersectionalityÆ.  

We are living through a postmodern era in which the grand narratives of religion and political ideology have collapsed. In their place have emerged a crusading desire to right perceived wrongs and a weaponisation of identity, both accelerated by the new forms of social and news media.

Narrow sets of interests now dominate the agenda as society becomes more and more tribal - and, as Murray shows, the casualties are mounting.   

Readers of all political persuasions cannot afford to ignore MurrayÆs masterfully argued and fiercely provocative book, in which he seeks to inject some sense into the discussion around this generationÆs most complicated issues. 

He ends with an impassioned call for free speech, shared common values and sanity in an age of mass hysteria.

Critic Reviews
================
"Simply brilliant. Reading it to the end, I felt as though IÆd just drawn my first full breath in years. At a moment of collective madness, there is nothing more refreshing - or, indeed, provocative - than sanity. (Sam Harris, author of five New York Times best-sellers and host of the Making Sense podcast)

"Whether one agrees with him or not, Douglas Murray is one of the most important public intellectuals today." (Bernard-Henri LΘvy)
