A book review by Kearney

Author and Boston College Seeling Professor of Philosophy Richard Kearney has published a review in the Irish Times of Thinking the Twentieth Century by Tony Judt. He writes: “It is a book of conversations. Conducted during the final months of [Judt’s] life with a brilliant young historian, Timothy Snyder (author of the acclaimed Bloodlands), Judt’s valedictory verdicts on the last century are apt and arresting. The dialogue format makes for a compelling read, and the sense that time is running out brings sharp focus to what is being said. No time for beating around bushes or hedging bets. This is history straight up.”
