Summary

John Gray is one of today’s most brilliant, bestselling and controversial political thinkers. This new collection examines him from a variety of stimulating angles.

This new volume, comprising original contributions from a number of distinguished political theorists, in addition to a reply by Gray himself, is the first book to systematically review  the general significance of his work. He is much cited and discussed within political and social theory, but he also has a much wider audience, being one of those quite rare creatures in British academic life, a public intellectual, writing regularly for the quality press and appearing on both radio and TV. His books sell in large numbers, Straw Dogs reached the top five in The Sunday Times bestseller list and was very widely reviewed in broadsheets and weeklies. It was extravagantly praised by Will Self and chosen by novelist, Monica Ali as her book of the year.

This book was previously published as a special issue of the leading Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy.
