'An extraordinary work of intellectual history, beautifully
written, raising the most profound questions about that sacred cow,
Western Civilization. I hope her book will be widely read.'
'A complex and original picture of international relations.'
Le Monde des Livres
'The author's deep understanding of the societies of the South helps her avoid facile judgements.'
'A particularly stimulating work, which traces the evolution of the modern West from its renaissance roots to its most recent avatar.' Telerama
'This book glows with lucid anger - and impatience with the confusions offered us not only by the proponents of Western supremacy but by many of its supposed opponents.'
