Why Our World Is the Way It Is. ( 2019)
“With remarkable detail and a wide breath of examples, Monique Layton has engineered an assault on our too-often thoughtless innocence. Her analysis ranges from Genesis, through the philosophy of classical and modern writers to the Sneetches of Dr. Seuss, from the work of historians and journalists to editorials and documentary films.” (Elvi Whittaker, PhD, LL.D (Hons) and author of The Mainland Haole, A Baltic Odyssey and Solitudes of the Workplace).
“Monique Layton challenges her readers to take the concept of everyday evil seriously. But she also provides windows of insight for change. Therein lies the hope for our era.” (Meg Hickling, CM, OBC, LLD (Hons) and author of Speaking of Sex and Boys, Girls and Body Science.
“Well written and a great read.” (Sarah Wethered, Vice-President, BC Teacher Librarians Association).
