Description
Even after ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) robbed him of the ability to write, the remarkable author of The Memory Chalet and the Pulitzer Prize finalist Postwar completed one last, sweeping assessment of humanity's wrenching struggle in the 20th century to realize a stable, prosperous system of government. In a series of interviews with his friend and fellow historian Timothy Snyder, Tony Judt guides us through a century of ideas, exploring the triumphs and the failures of prominent intellectuals and explaining both their ideas and the risks of their political commitments to concepts like fascism, communism, nazism, and capitalism.

"An intellectual feast, learned, lucid, challenging and accessible."SFChronicle

"Scintillating ... a lively, browsable, deeply satisfying meditation on recent history by a deservedly celebrated public intellectual."Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Fans will find plenty to sustain them in this poignant coda.... [Judt's] bravery is ever-present, but rightly understated. As Mr. Snyder notes in his introduction, the book is both about the life of the mind and a mindful life. Judt exemplified both."Economist (London)
