The Unknowers
'The definitive book for our times on what makes strategic ignorance so "strategic" in the hands of the powerful.'Steve Fuller, author of Post-Truth'This is McGoeyat her absolute best. And what a tour de force The Unknowers is. Each chapter weaves its way backward and forward between events andevidence, past and future making, to offer original insightsinto how strategic ignorance and deliberate uncertainty keep those at thetop in power.'Susan L.Robertson, University of Cambridge 'The Unknowers is a landmark study of the myriad waysin which ignorance infuses our social, political and economic lives. LinseyMcGoey deftly weaves social thought and empirical analysis to rethink how thepower to draw the boundaries between knowledge and ignorance can radicallytransform society and democracy.'ClaudiaAradau, King’sCollege London'In thistimely book, McGoey tells us how deliberate and willful ignorance are used inpolitics, law, media, health and especially economics, to get and keep power.And she tells us what we might do about it.'LynnePettinger, University of Warwick. 'Linsey McGoey carefully picksapart how strategic ignorance is a dastardly ploy that enables society’s elitesto avoid responsibility for their rampant pursuit of self-interest. Essential if we are to resist what is one of themost dangerous tendencies of the new normal in global politics.'Carl Rhodes,co-author of CEO Society:The Corporate Takeover of Everyday Life.
