The Enlightenment, or The Age of Reason has been blamed for the bloody disasters of the 20th century; Auschwitz, the Gulags, globalisation, Islamic terrorism and heralded as the harbinger of reason, equality and the end of arbitrary rule.

Whilst historians dispute the whereabouts and timeline of this cultural and intellectual shift, Kieron O'Hara deftly presents the history, politics, science, religion, arts and social life of this era not as a set of easily enumerated ideas, but an evolving conglomerate from Rousseau to Burke.

Lively and erudite. This is an excellent and, for its length remarkably comprehensive, starting place for approaching the Enlightenment.' Penny Fielding, Senior Lecturer in English Literature, University of Edinburgh.
