Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A gift to the next generation of engaged citizens, from one of our most celebrated intellectuals.

As the economic collapse of 2008 made clear, the social contract that defined postwar life in Europe and America-the guarantee of security, stability, and fairness-is no longer guaranteed; in fact, it's no longer part of the common discourse. Tony Judt, one of our leading historians and thinkers, offers the language we need to address our common needs, rejecting the nihilistic individualism of the far Right and the debunked socialism of the past. In reintroducing alternatives to the status quo, Judt invigorates our political conversation, furnishing the tools necessary to imagine a new form of governance and a better way of life.

About the Author

He is University Professor at New York University and the founder and director of the Remarque Institute, which is dedicated to the study of Europe
