Age of Anger Pankaj Mishra talked about his book Age of Anger: A History of the Present, in which he examines the catalysts in society, past and present, that give rise to nationalist groups and hate groups. In his book, he argues that as modernization occurred around the world, groups that were left on the sidelines or pushed out of prosperity responded in a similar manner of dislike or contempt for their perceived enemy.
