"An excellent take on the lunacy affecting much of the world today. Douglas is one of the bright lights that could lead us out of the darkness." – Joe Rogan

"Douglas Murray fights the good fight for freedom of speech ... A truthful look at today's most divisive issues" – Jordan B. Peterson

Are we living through the great derangement of our times?

In The Madness of Crowds Douglas Murray investigates the dangers of 'woke' culture and the rise of identity politics. In lively, razor-sharp prose he examines the most controversial issues of our moment: sexuality, gender, technology and race, with interludes on the Marxist foundations of 'wokeness', the impact of tech and how, in an increasingly online culture, we must relearn the ability to forgive.

One of the few writers who dares to counter the prevailing view and question the dramatic changes in our society – from gender reassignment for children to the impact of transgender rights on women – Murray's penetrating book, now published with a new afterword taking account of the book's reception and responding to the worldwide Black Lives Matter protests, clears a path of sanity through the fog of our modern predicament.


  • Excellent read

    By 鐘雲龍
    If you believe in the very concept of rights, you must read this book. Europe is NOT America, and it should not be American. There is room in the world for many peoples, but nobody should be forced to sacrifice his or her homeland for the sins of another.

  • A Super Important Read

    By yung shrug
    I recommend this book to anyone. It’s important in our modern toxic climate to listen and hear all sides in civil discourse with reasonable discussion and good faith. I thank Mr. Murray for his intellect and views on these topics. Shame on anyone who tries to silence this book.
