University of Cambridge: An 800th Anniversary Portrait Review
“Suitably emollient on the whole, though with sharp edges in places, this compendium of low living and high thinking, of student press and Nobel Prizemen … will enjoy a wide readership.” The Times Literary Supplement, 16 December 2009 “Chock-full of images and bursting with contributions from a veritable Who’s Who of twentieth-century Cambridge alumni, Pagnamenta’s book is entertaining, informative, and up-to-date. Four stars.” Varsity, 30 January 2009

“Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress”
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.
