The publication of “Man Against Myth” in 1947 was received with critical acclaim and won high praise from some of the best minds of the time.

The book demolishes a series of deeply entrenched social myths such as the ‘Rich are fit and the poor unfit’: ‘There are superior and inferior races;’ and ‘You cannot be free and safe’. The perpetuation of such myths, the book argues, has been beneficial to the interests of a privileged few and has worked to justify inequality and impede human progress in society. Written with sensitivity and wit, Man Against Myth conveys a powerful message that continues to resonate in contemporary times.

“It is an instructive, amusing and courageous book whose success is most desirable in the public interest.”
-Albert Einstein
