The Blank Slate and How the Mind Works were both finalists for the Pulitzer Prize. He is Johnstone Family Professor of Psychology at Harvard and has been named by Time magazine as one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World.
[White] doesn't take sides so much as report the facts--and the death tolls. . . . Full of fascinating information about parts of the world little-known to most Westerners.
A fascinating read thanks to White's keen grasp of history and his wry take on the villains of the past.
White . . . gives voice to the suffering of ordinary people that, inexorably, has defined every historical epoch.
