Publisher Comments:

From the #1 New York Times best-selling author of God Is Not Great, a provocative and entertaining guided tour of atheist and agnostic thought through the ages--with never-before-published pieces by Salman Rushdie, Ian McEwan, and Ayaan Hirsi Ali.Christopher Hitchens continues to make the case for a splendidly godless universe in this first-ever gathering of the influential voices--past and present--that have shaped his side of the current (and raging) God/no-god debate. With Hitchens as your erudite and witty guide, youll be led through a wealth of philosophy, literature, and scientific inquiry, including generous portions of the words of Lucretius, Benedict de Spinoza, Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, Mark Twain, George Eliot, Bertrand Russell, Emma Goldman, H. L. Mencken, Albert Einstein, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, and many others well-known and lesser known. And theyre all set in context and commented upon as only Christopher Hitchens--“political and literary journalist extraordinaire” (Los Angeles Times)--can. Atheist? Believer? Uncertain? No matter: The Portable Atheist will speak to you and engage you every step of the way.

Michael Johnston, November 13, 2007 (view all comments by Michael Johnston)
This latest contribution to the dialog about religion and anti-theists is a thinking man's delight. Hitchens brings together a wide range of expositions on religion and religious thought, enlivening them with cogent comment and introduction. Read Mark Twain expound on the "creator of the fly' and marvel at the inventiveness of Dawkins' treatise on "Gerin Oil" and the good Doctor's pimping for a new movement "atheists for Jesus".
