A classic collection of Bertrand Russell's more controversial works, reaffirming his staunch liberal values, Unpopular Essays is one of Russell's most characteristic and self-revealing books. Written to combat... the growth in Dogmatism, on first publication in 1950 it met with critical acclaim and a wide readership and has since become one of his most accessible and popular books.

Industry Reviews

'An intellectual treat...the delight of this book lies in that combination of wit with perception, and of width of view with ease of expression for which Russell made himself known.' - Financial Times 'Russell is as incapable of being dull as he is of being shallow' -- The Observer 'His writings reflect his crystalline, scintillating mind and rank him among the few masters of English style' -- Sunday Times
