Recensioner i media

"Before I came to America from England, I asked an American journalist in London what kind of reactions to expect. "Well, when they hear an English accent Americans usually add twenty points to your IQ," he replied. Recalling that the authors of the The Bell Curve had claimed that black people have an IQ fifteen points lower than whites, I was heartened to think that even in the eyes of the most hardened racist I would still come out five points ahead." - From Stranger in a Strange Land "Gary Younge is an excellent journalist - a critical writer at a critical time." - ANDREA LEVY "Forthright, sane, measured, and vivid, Younge sees both England and America with a kind of hard-edged clarity that impresses me no end." - JONATHAN RABAN"
