Ill Fares the Land is a passionately argued book in which Tony Judt attempts to blow new life into social democracy. He argues that we need to include social values again in our political discourse, that we need to recast our public conversation, and that young people should again act on their feelings of unease about the political direction the world is heading in.
Tony Judt, one of the world’s leading historians and intellectuals, argues that we must look to our recent past and once again value fairness over mere efficiency. This concentrated expression of a lifetime’s concerns gives us the tools with which to imagine a new form of governance and a better way of life.
Tony Judt’s Postwar is cause for celebration. The product of a decade’s labor, it is sweeping narrative history in the grand tradition, a deeply learned and absorbing chronicle of Europe since the fall of Berlin, weaving East and West, North and South, into a majestic sixty-year tapestry studded with brilliant new insight.
