9780099532330: Reappraisals: Reflections on the Forgotten Twentieth Century

In Reappraisals award-winning historian Tony Judt argues that we have entered an 'age of forgetting', where we have set aside our immediate past before we could even begin to make sense of it. We have lost touch with generations of international policy debate, social thought and public-spirited social activism - and no longer even know how to discuss such concepts - and have forgotten the role once played by intellectuals in debating, transmitting and defending the ideas that shaped their time. Reappraisals is a road map back to the historical sense we urgently need. A masterful collection of essays, it examines the tragedy of twentieth-century Europe by way of thought-provoking pieces on Hannah Arendt, Edward Said, Albert Camus and Henry Kissinger amongst others.

From the Inside Flap:

As Tony Judt argues persuasively in Reappraisals, we have entered an "age of forgetting." Today’s world is so utterly unlike the world of just twenty years ago that we have set aside our immediate past even before we could make sense of it. We literally don't know where we came from, and the results of this burgeoning ignorance are proving calamitous, with the clear prospect of worse to come. We have lost touch with three generations of international policy debate, social thought and public-spirited social activism. We no longer know how to discuss such concepts and we have forgotten the role once played by intellectuals in debating, transmitting and defending the ideas that shaped their time. In Reappraisals, Tony Judt resurrects key aspects of the world we have lost and reminds us how important they still are to us: now and to our hopes for the future.

Judt draws provocative connections between a dazzling range of subjects, from the history of the neglect and recovery of the Holocaust and the challenge of ‘evil’ in understanding the European past, to the rise and fall of the state in public affairs and the displacement of history by ‘heritage’.Ranging with his trademark acuity and élan from Belgium to Israel, from the memory of Marxism to the practice of foreign policy, he takes us beyond what we think we know to show us how we came to know it, and reveals how much of our history has been sacrificed in the triumph of myth-making over understanding and denial over memory. His book is a road map back to the historical sense we urgently need.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Postwar Shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize

‘He dares to expound the sum total of Europe since 1945 in a seamless narrative… This is history-writing with a human face, as well as with brainpower… It is most unlikely that Judt's achievement will be superseded soon.’ Norman Davies, Guardian

‘'Truly superb - a magnificent achievement. It is hard to imagine how a better - and morereadable - history of the emergence of today's Europe from the ashes of 1945 could ever be written...A real masterpiece.'Ian Kershaw, author of Hitler

‘A superb work of synthesis, analysis and reflection.’ Timothy Garton-Ash, TLS, Books of the Year

‘A hugely impressive work, vigorously and lucidly written... Its range is awe-inspiring.' Marina Warner, Observer, Books of the Year

‘Masterly and exhilarating... This is a splendid book to which no review can do proper justice.’ Geoffrey Wheatcroft, Spectator
