Ours is an ‘age of forgetting’. We literally don't know where we came from, and the results of this burgeoning ignorance are proving calamitous, with the prospect of worse to come. Judt resurrects key aspects of the world we have lost and reminds us how important they still are to us. He draws 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'. There are illuminating assessments of Primo Levi and Hannah Arendt, a deconstruction of the fall of France in 1940, explorations of Belgium's fractured statehood and the ambiguous position of Romania in Europe, and much else besides.

. . . a ruthless dissection of the ruling illusions of the post-cold war years . . . Judt is a liberal thinker dedicated to demystifying liberal illusions. GUARDIAN
