Reviews

"A powerful wake-up call for the progressive left to have some faith in its Enligtenment project" * Observer *
"Forget the Man Booker long list. Susan Neiman's superb new book should be at the top of beach reads this summer. For what Neiman beautifully chronicles is how in all sorts of policy areas the left has let slip its Enlightenment bearings and is no longer able to act on moral impulses.... Now is the time to turn to Neiman and re-inject some morality into progressive politics - for the good of everyone" -- Tristram Hunt * Guardian *
"In Moral Clarity Susan Neilman criticises the philosophical ideas that dominate contemporary culture and politics on a grand scale... By the end of the 20th century, scepticism about reason and agnosticism about morality pervaded political life and popular culture. Neiman skewers this well-worn genealogy with splendid directness" -- Onora O'Neill * Financial Times *
"Neiman asks people to reject the false choice between Utopia and degeneracy. Moral progress, she writes, is neither guaranteed nor hopeless. Instead, it is up to us" * Economist *
"Neiman's particular skill lies in expressing sensitivity, intelligence and moral seriousness without any hint of oversimplification, dogmatism or misplaced piety. She clearly and unflinchingly sees life as it is, but also sees how it might be, and could be, if we recaptured some of the hopes and ideas that currently escape us" * New York Times *
