Prospect Book Club—Pankaj Mishra
Why is everyone so angry? From Islamic State to Trump to the re-emergence of ethnic nationalism, it’s the big question of our age. In his blazing intellectual history, Age of Anger, Pankaj Mishra says the answer is that capitalist modernisation has caused huge psychological dislocation. Many left behind, or who feel themselves pushed around, react in horrifyingly similar ways: hatred of invented enemies, attempts to re-create an imaginary golden age and even spectacular violence. Mishra, one of the finest analysts of our current malaise, charts this profound challenge to the liberal order.
