9780028740942: On the Eve of the Millennium: The future of democracy through an age of unreason

This collection of essays examines how nationalism and religion are threatening democracy, the rule of the law, and freedom of expression throughout the world. It points to nations who, by tighteneing their borders to stem the tide of illegal immigrants, are abandoning their commitment to the international rights of man. Similarly, an unlikely alliance has been forged between the Vatican and the leaders of fundamentalist Islam in defence of a perceived threat to common traditional values. The essays show how the proponents of political correctness denigrate all developments in post-Enlightenment civilization as "elitist", leaving few reasonable political options.

Book Description SIMON SCHUSTER, United States, 1995. Paperback. Book Condition: New. American ed.. 210 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. All my life , writes Conor Cruise O Brien, I have been fascinated and puzzled by nationalism and religion; by the interaction of the two forces, sometimes in unison, sometimes antagonistic. In these wide-ranging and penetrating essays, O Brien examines how throughout the world today these age-old forces are once again threatening democracy, the rule of law, and freedom of expression-- particularly in the United States, the nation founded on Enlightenment values. He weaves together beautifully written discussions on these and other timely, related topics. Enlivening his grim predictions with dry wit, he nevertheless conveys an apocalyptic sense of the threats facing democracy as we approach the third millennium.
