Bibliographic information


"A second, superlative collection of republished essays by a young master of intellectual history . . . The distinctions on big subjects are impressively lapidary, while the clear writing makes this a joy to read, despite the gut-wrenching subject matter." - Matthew Feldman, Teesside University, UK

"As the title of this more than erudite, literary examination suggests, three subjects are tackled throughout (The Holocaust, Fascism and Memory), making for a quintessentially stimulating read from beginning to end." - David Marx, Book Reviews Blog
