"One of our most important public intellectuals reveals the hidden history of our current global crisis. How can we explain the origins of the great wave of paranoid hatreds that seem inescapable in our close-knit world--from American 'shooters' and ISIS to Trump, from a rise in vengeful nationalism across the world to racism and misogyny on social media? In Age of Anger, Pankaj Mishra answers our bewilderment by casting his gaze back to the eighteenth century, before leading us to the present. He shows that as the world became modern those who were unable to fulfill its promises--freedom, stability and prosperity--were increasingly susceptible to demagogues. The many who came late to this new world or were left, or pushed, behind, reacted in horrifyingly similar ways: intense hatred of invented enemies, attempts to re-create an imaginary golden age, and self-empowerment through spectacular violence. It was from among the ranks of the disaffected that the militants of the 19th century arose--angry young men who became cultural nationalists in Germany, messianic revolutionaries in Russia, bellicose chauvinists in Italy, and anarchist terrorists internationally. Today, just as then, the wider embrace of mass politics, technology, and the pursuit of wealth and individualism has cast many more billions adrift in a literally demoralized world, uprooted from tradition but still far from modernity--with the same terrible results. Making startling connections and comparisons, Age of Anger is a book of immense urgency and profound argument. It is a history of our present predicament unlike any other"--… (plus d'informations)

Pankaj Mishra beschrijft in ‘Tijd van woede’ op een beknopte en briljante manier de geschiedenis van woede als politieke drijfveer. Met verrassende historische parallellen laat hij zien dat deze tijd niet uniek is: ook het begin van de twintigste eeuw was vol van destructiedrift, nationalisme en terrorisme. Dat is geen geruststellende gedachte en ‘Tijd van woede’ is dan ook een alarmerend boek: er zal een mentaliteitsverandering nodig zijn om onze vrijheid, welvaart en stabiliteit te behouden

I’m not as enamoured with Nietzsche as Mishra but , that premise aside, it’s wonderfully written. ( )

There is an important and vital thesis - or, premise - in this book.

In my view, however, Pankaj Mishra lost the plot about 10% of the way through the book. There are a bewildering number of references to various Europeans like d'Annunzio and Rousseau and.....

However, while they and their disciples may have had an influence on countries as far away as India, he does not examine the social and political changes taking place in these countries. It would have been helpful if he had contrasted India (where the changes are taking place now) with one or two other countries. He could have, alternatively, compared our time with the situation in the 1800s and the early 1900s.

Instead, he dips in and out of references to many characters, books, writings and, in the end, the book is like a confused ball of wool that he has asked the reader, unkindly, to unwind. ( )

Mishra suggests that today’s troubles are the result of the unresolved clash between the Enlightenment tradition and the mass of the citizenry, who are generally less interested in change and rationality and feel condescended to by the educated elites. Modernism is full of violence; ISIS is not an Islamic entity but rather a backlash entity similar to many others provoked by Enlightenment ideals implemented in a context of economic inequality. He has an extended riff on the coherence of Timothy McVeigh’s ideology that helps illustrate why US conservatives are so happy to have Russian conservatives on their side. ( )

The "Age of Anger" explains the roots of today's populist movements in a way unlike any other book. The author, Pankaj Mishra, traces the roots of today's movements back to the arguments between Voltaire and Rousseau. It then follows-up with the philosophies of the German Romantic movement and the turn of the century anarchists. In the process, he forces you to see the events of today from a new perspective.

The weakness of the book is the style in which it is written. Mishra jumps from Modi to Erdogan to Trump in the space of just a few sentences in a way that gives the reader whiplash. He also expects you to have a detailed knowledge of 18th, 19th and 20th century political and cultural history. ( )

This is an important, erudite and flawed book about the deepest roots of this inflamed moment [...] Mishra didn’t scramble for a theory to fit the facts. He has a highly developed understanding of the psychic and emotional forces propelling illiberalism’s spread across the globe, a movement united by a sense of disappointment, bewilderment and envy — the spiritual condition that Nietzsche diagnosed as ressentiment. An anger that Mishra both interprets and shares.
