Reviews

'In this important and timely book, Pluckrose and Lindsay trace the intellectual origins of today's Social Justice crusaders. With clear prose and a fair-minded spirit, they argue forcefully that struggles for social justice are strongest when they are founded on respect for evidence, reason, and free and open debate. They deplore the harm that closed-minded Social Justice ideologues are doing to the cause of social justice (lowercase), and they offer practical strategies for doing better' Alan Sokal, Professor of Mathematics, UCL, and co-author of Fashionable Nonsense
'If you want to know the philosophy behind cancel culture and why it is so creepy, get this book. Then, give it to your friends and family.' Ayaan Hirsi Ali
