Ill Fares the Land by Tony Judt
Ill Fares the Land

Alex Deley, January 8, 2011

The loss of Tony Judt was sufficiently galling to caste doubts over the latter component of 2010 as a whole - Judt was after all not merely one of our greatest historians, but also, and perhaps somewhat covertly, one of the great moral philosophers of the past several decades. With Ill Fares the Land, Judt has written a pressing treatise on liberalism, what is means to be a creature of the left, and the importance of restoring the social state for the sake of the revitalization of a wider civil society and civic responsibility. This book is terse but carries great depth. It is not to be missed.
