In this extraordinary book, developed from the 2004 BBC Radio 4 Reith Lectures, Soyinka explores the changing face of fear: the conflict between power and freedom; the complex motives behind unthinkable acts of violence and the meaning of human dignity. While comparing the fanaticism of powerful terrorists with the attitude of world leaders Soyinka discovers some terrifying similarities.
