Mumford demonstrates an admirable ability to zero in on things too often missing from political conversations ... A plea for nuance and ambivalence, in a world that often seems to be in danger of mislaying both. * John Harris, Observer *
James Mumford has written the most intriguing and original reflection on political tribalism that I have ever read ... Vexed is an intellectual page-turner. * David Goodhart, author of The Road to Somewhere: The New Tribes Shaping British Politics *
Mumford is a subtle, supple and frequently ingenious thinker. His style is abrasive enough to make readers sit up when needed, but never enough to make us feel as if we are being hectored or bullied ... A memorable and illuminating assault on what happens when ideology shuts down thought. * Catholic Herald *
A thought-provoking exploration of some of the most contentious problems of our time * Sunday Times *
An important contribution to understanding the polarization of our global politics from one of the most exciting young ethicists working today * James Davison Hunter, Labrosse-Levenson Professor, Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture, University of Virginia and author of Culture Wars *
Lively, well argued ... help[s] us understand aspects of tribalism * Financial Times *
Fascinating ... Supplies readers with ample food for thought and opportunities to reconsider and broaden their own perspective. * Vision *
