The Independent reviewed Paradise on 24th June.

 '...this is an exceptionally lucid, stimulating and thought-provoking book. Why, after almost 3000 years of the divine quest for paradise, and for the perfectibility of this world, do we stand on the brink of a war between civilizations and ecological meltdown? Rushby perceptively notes the link between the ideal of perfection and the reality of violence.'
