About Pascal Bruckner
Table of contents
"A sizzling new polemic against apocalyptic environmentalism."
San Francisco Chronicle
"The best tonic for stale science communications I've read in a while."
Cool Green Science
"Pascal Bruckner is a brilliant writer - astute, learned, broad-ranging, mordant, sometimes mischievous, and sometimes prophetic. He is one of the handful of writers around the world who define the intellectual history of our time."
Paul Berman, author of The Flight of the Intellectuals
"With his usual verve and eloquence, in The Fanaticism of the Apocalypse Pascal Bruckner offers a bracing and provocative critique of an ever-more-pervasive and fanatical Green politics and ideology. For Bruckner, the ecological catastrophism the latter promotes constitutes less a salutary call to action than a return to the politics of guilt encouraged by exhausted ideologies, religions, and religious institutions, the Catholic Church in particular. This book will please some and consternate others, but its intelligence and originality make it an important book for our times."
Richard Golsan, Texas A&M University
"For anyone who has had enough of being harangued for single-handedly destroying the planet for future generations, Pascal Bruckner's new book will come as a welcome breath of fresh and unpolluted air."
