"The strongest man in the world is the one who stands most alone." The plot of Ibsen's play is relevant more than 125 years after its 1882 publication. Natural springs found in a little Norwegian village are about to put the town on the map until a physician outs a powerful area business that is poisoning the water. Unfortunately, the media is complicit with local government in suppressing the study and when the scientist himself offers to lecture no one will rent him a forum. In short, when the scientist bucks local interests he becomes a pariah to the lightly-educated and easily-manipulated majority in the town, "an enemy of the people." Handier than the free PDFs on the web, this you can hold, bookmark, highlight and shelve. An inexpensive imperative for any history-, economics-, or political- buff.

The strongest man in the world is he who stands most alone. Dr Stockmann attempts to expose a water pollution scandal in his home town which is about to establish itself as a spa. When his brother conspires with local politicians and the newspaper to suppress the story, Stockmann appeals to a public meeting - only to be shouted down and reviled as 'an enemy of the people'. Ibsen's explosive play reveals his distrust of politicians and the blindly held beliefs of the masses. Christopher Hampton's version of Ibsen's classic was first staged at the National Theatre, London, in 1997.

They are peopled not by symbolic figures and abstract concepts, but by complex individuals pitted against, or part of, a society that Ibsen felt was morally abhorrent and claustrophobically provincial.
