“Around the world, both East and West, the insurrectionary fury of militants, zealots and populists has overturned the post-Cold-War global consensus. Where does their rage come from, and where will it end? One of the sharpest cultural critics and political analysts releases his landmark “history of the present” - Boyd Tonkin, Newsweek.
“Richly learned and usefully subversive” - John Gray, Literary Review.
“A bowel-churning kick in the guts . . . [Pankaj Mishra’s] vision is unusually broad, accommodating and resistant to categorisation. It is the kind of vision the world needs right now . . . Age of Anger is vitally germane to the global expressions of discontent that we are now witnessing” - Christopher de Bellaigue, Financial Times.
“[An] ambitious world history of anti-progressive backlash” - New York.
“A disturbing but imperatively urgent analysis” - Bryce Christensen, Booklist (starred review).
“A probing, well-informed investigation of global unrest calling for ‘truly transformative thinking’ about humanity’s future” - Kirkus Reviews (starred review).
“Scintillating…Age of Anger looks an awful lot like a masterwork. We’re only a few weeks into 2017, but one of the books of the year is already here”- Christopher Bray, The Tablet.
“Sensitive and illuminating….Makes a powerful case for the influence of a certain group of anti-rational and anti-commercial ideas which have influenced our world.,..Mishra’s contribution is to show us how these ideas have become ‘viral’ and what that means for all of us” - Jonathan Steinberg, The Spectator.
“Incisive…Age of Anger, which was completed after the Brexit vote but before Trump’s victory, reminds us that the dialectical movement between these two poles between a desire to be oneself and a desire to belong to something larger than oneself has been a feature of Western political life since the Enlightenment” - Justin E.H. Smith, Harper’s.
“Incisive and scary.. a wake-up call” - Nick Fraser, Observer.
An impressively probing and timely work…Highly engaging” - Publishers Weekly (starred review).

However there are serious gaps in the book (lack of a good editore, perhaps). Pankaj keeps repeating the same line , (and same source of Rousseau and Bakunin) , throught the book, and yet lampooning Hegel(and Marx), he states, history doesn't repeat itself.
Yet the book is good read, and thought provoking, only it could have been better edited, perhaps half its size and should have negated this negation of "anger" , to simple being of everyday life.
