ON THE EVE OF THE MILLENNIUM

ON THE EVE OF THE MILLENNIUM
A distinguished statesman and man of letters deplores the mounting attacks on Enlightenment values that jeopardize the very survival of the democratic institutions they inspired. Enlivening his grim predictions with dry wit, O'Brien nevertheless conveys an apocalyptic sense of the threats facing democracy as we approach the third millennium.

"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.
