PositiveThe Times Literary Supplement (UK)... the very obviousness of its focus emerges as one of the key strengths of Identity, Ignorance, Innovation. This is because of d’Ancona’s range. The author neatly synthesizes material from across the political spectrum, drawing on a range of references, and powerfully backs up his arguments with evidence ... D’Ancona is particularly clear-eyed about identity politics ... Identity, Ignorance, Innovation convincingly argues that we can aim higher, and that collaboration, tolerance and education are the keys to navigating the array of challenges and changes we currently face. However, there is a key part of the story that is touched on all too sporadically, if at all. This is the position of older millennials (such as the author of this review) ... he offers too little on how a small but significant cohort that has already been directly affected by not one but two \'once in a generation\' shocks could or should respond. This book is no complete policy guide, then, and it does not claim to be. However, d’Ancona’s regular practical suggestions help to take it beyond mere theory and into the real world—which is more than can be said for many of today’s political commentators. Decision-makers would do well to read it.
