A terrific book here full of insight, information and highly interesting people…gives the book a warm and beating heart. This is a very important book…an insight into the fantastic variety of human responses to adversity.

We are changing our view of trauma, seeking counsellors for all occasions. Tanveer’s case studies illuminate these trends. But readers will find them interesting for their own sake, stories of humanity. His book is nothing less than an account of how we live now: from Mujahideen to Mcmansions.

Theodore Dalrymple

Dr Ahmed argues clearly and forcefully for a less mechanistic and bureaucratic psychiatry, which harms our culture and society as well as individuals. His book will be unwelcome in the very circles where it is most needed.

This is a fantastic read. Fragile Nation offers a compelling account of the way that culture, morality and psychology intersect and influence in- dividual behaviour in a transnational world.

Bettina Arndt

Tanveer Ahmed’s Fragile Nation comes as revelation to me. I have following his writing for many years and have always been impressed by his knowledge, valuable insights and willingness to express unpopular truths. But I was riveted by his stories of the people he cares for as a psychiatrist working in Western Sydney: angry white men, alienated youth seduced by Islam, damaged refugees, the children of tiger mothers. Amazing people revealed with sensitivity and candour. Here’s to Tanveer Ahmed – Australia’s Theodore Dalrymple.
