Thinking on Sunday: The Rage: The Vicious Circle of Islamist and Far Right Extremism | Sunday 24th February
Julia Ebner shows how far right and Islamist extremists have succeeded in penetrating each other’s echo chambers as a result of their mutually useful messages. Her book introduces readers to the world of reciprocal radicalisation and the hotbeds of extremism that have developed in the UK, Europe and the US, with potentially disastrous consequences for all.
Roger Luckhurst takes in a wide range of sources, from architectural history to fiction, film and television, to explore how the corridor went from a utopian ideal to a place of unease: the archetypal stuff of nightmares.
The new neuroscience that shatters the myth of the female brain. This is not feminist science – it’s just science. Professor Gina Rippon, author of The Gendered Brain, shows us the reality behind much of the data that is used to justify the gender gap, and explains how major breakthroughs in neuroscience will help us dispel these stereotypes and ‘neurotrash’.
