Postwar : a history of Europe since 1945 by Tony Judt( Book )

116 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 3,796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first truly European history of contemporary Europe, from Lisbon to Leningrad, based on research in six languages, covering 34 countries across 60 years, using a great deal of material from newly available sources. The book integrates international relations, domestic politics, ideas, social change, economic development, and culture--high and low--into a single grand narrative. Every country has its chance to play the lead, and although the big themes are handled--including the cold war, the love/hate relationship with America, cultural and economic malaise and rebirth, and the myth and reality of unification--none of them is allowed to overshadow the rich pageant that is the whole.--From publisher description
Past imperfect : French intellectuals, 1944-1956 by Tony Judt( )

22 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,013 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The burden of responsibility : Blum, Camus, Aron, and the French twentieth century by Tony Judt( )

36 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leon Blum, Albert Camus, and Raymond Aron might seem an unlikely combination. Blum was a fin-de-siecle aesthete who became the spiritual and political leader of the French non-Communist Left in the first half of this century. Camus, best known to millions of readers worldwide for his novels The Stranger and The Plague, was a wartime Resistance figure who played a prominent part in post-1945 intellectual life in France before dying tragically young in a car crash in 1960. Aron, a contemporary of Jean-Paul Sartre in the brilliant intellectual generation of interwar France, was a political theorist, journalist, and critic of Communism who made a major contribution to the recent revival of liberal thought in contemporary France. In The Burden of Responsibility Tony Judt offers a distinctive and original reinterpretation of the writings and public role of these three men, arguing that they have much in common. Despite the great differences in their backgrounds, their interests, and their views, all three were men of integrity who took seriously their responsibility as public intellectuals
Marxism and the French Left : studies in labour and politics in France, 1830-1981 by Tony Judt( )

29 editions published between 1985 and 2011 in English and French and held by 1,828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unlike most books, which treat labor, Socialist and Communist history separately and view French Marxism as a self-contained philosophical phenomenon, Marxism and the French Left offers a refreshingly different approach to the subject. Judt emphasizes the complex and interwoven themes that unify the topics of his essays to construct a distinctive and original interpretation of French left-wing politics over the past 150 years. "A well-informed and persuasive reinterpretation of the old French Left that is now receding beyond recall, except for historians."--Times Literary Supplement
Ill fares the land by Tony Judt( Book )

94 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in 16 languages and held by 1,513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In "Ill Fares The Land," Tony Judt, one of our leading historians and thinkers, reveals how we have arrived at our present dangerously confused moment and offers the language we need to address our common needs, rejecting the nihilistic individualism of the far right and the debunked socialism of the past. To find a way forward, Judt argues that we must look to our not so distant past and to social democracy in action: to re-enshrining fairness over mere efficiency
Reappraisals : reflections on the forgotten twentieth century by Tony Judt( Book )

51 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The accelerating changes of the past generation have been accompanied by a comparably accelerated amnesia. The twentieth century has become "history" at an unprecedented rate. The world of 2007 is so utterly unlike that of even 1987, much less any earlier time, that we have lost touch with our immediate past even before we have begun to make sense of it. In less than a generation, the headlong advance of globalization, with the geographical shifts of emphasis and influence it brings in its wake, has altered the structures of thought that had been essentially unchanged since the European industrial revolution. Quite literally, we don't know where we came from. From the history of the neglect and recovery of the Holocaust and the challenge of "evil" in the understanding of the European past to the rise and fall of the "state" in public affairs and the displacement of history by "heritage," Judt takes us beyond what we think we know to show us how we came to know it and reveals how many aspects of our history have been sacrificed in the triumph of mythmaking over understanding, collective identity over truth, and denial over memory.--tomado de
The politics of retribution in Europe : World War II and its aftermath by István Deák( Book )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and Italian and held by 1,304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The presentation of Europe's historical past has changed - it was possible to conceal the fact that the majority of people actively co-operated or accommodated Nazi rule. This collection unravells the moral and political choices facing European governments in the aftermath of World War II
Socialism in Provence, 1871-1914 : a study in the origins of the modern French left by Tony Judt( )

18 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in English and held by 1,244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Departing from the usual emphasis on an urban and industrial context for the rise of socialism, Socialism in Provence 1871-1914 offers instead a reinterpretation of the early years of Marxist socialism in France among the peasantry. By focusing on a limited period and a particular region, Judt provides an account both of the character of political behavior in the countryside and of the history of left-wing politics in France
The memory chalet by Tony Judt( Book )

47 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 1,039 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The Memory Chalet' is a memoir unlike any you have ever read before. Each essay charts some experience or remembrance of the past through the sieve of Tony Judt's prodigious mind. His youthful love of a particular London bus route evolves into a reflection on public civility and interwar urban planning. Memories of the 1968 student riots of Paris meander through the divergent sex politics of Europe, before concluding that his generation 'was a revolutionary generation, but missed the revolution.' A series of road trips across America lead not just to an appreciation of American history, but to an eventual acquisition of citizenship. Foods and trains and long-lost smells all compete for Judt's attention; but for us, he has forged his reflections into an elegant arc of analysis. All as simply and beautifully arranged as a Swiss chalet-a reassuring refuge deep in the mountains of memory."--Dust jacket flap
A grand illusion? : an essay on Europe by Tony Judt( Book )

33 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this timely new book, a distinguished intellectual historian offers us cogent and persuasive responses to these urgent topical questions: What are the prospects for the European Union? If they are not wholly rosy, why is that? Which nations should "belong" to Europe and when? And, in any event, how much does it matter whether a united Europe does or does not come about, on whatever terms? Tony Judt - European by extraction, British by nationality, American by residence - is especially well qualified to examine these thorny issues. At once skeptical of large claims yet enthusiastically "European," he argues that there are reasonable, realistic, and practical modes by which we can deal with the political, cultural, and economic factors involved. We need not return to the Europe of the past, but we also need not settle for a super-national, quasi-sovereign European Union that obliterates national differences

18 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Language, nation, and state : identity politics in a multilingual age by Tony Judt( Book )

19 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this collection of original essays Denis Lacorne and Tony Judt have brought together ten experts from North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, and Israel to address the legal, communal, historical and political dimensions of this "language question" in modern and modernizing societies. Ranging from the conflict between French and Occitan in the construction of modern France to the future of language use on the Internet, Language, Nation, and State contributes to some of the most contentious debates of our time: What are the sources of ethnic conflict? Is multiculturalism a solution to the problems of linguistic minorities? Are there any models of successful multilingual and stable societies? The authors have no single answer to propose to these questions but no one with an interest in them - which is to say no one actively concerned with the dilemmas of our contemporary world - can ignore the issues raised in this book."--Jacket
Postwar : a history of Europe since 1945 by Tony Judt( )

25 editions published between 2005 and 2017 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La reconstruction du parti socialiste : 1921-1926 by Tony Judt( Book )

13 editions published in 1976 in French and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reappraisals : reflections on the forgotten twentieth century by Tony Judt( )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book the author argues that 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 vital issues of public policy and we have forgotten the role once played by intellectuals in debating, transmitting, and defending the ideas that shaped their time. Key aspects of the world we have lost are resurrected and we are reminded how important they still are to us, now and to our hopes for the future

When the facts change : essays, 1995-2010 by Tony Judt( Book )

16 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In an age in which the lack of independent public intellectuals has often been sorely lamented, the historian Tony Judt played a rare and valuable role, bringing together history and current events, Europe and America, what was and what is with what should be. In When the Facts Change, Tony Judt's widow and fellow historian Jennifer Homans has assembled an essential collection of the most important and influential pieces written in the last fifteen years of Judt's life, the years in which he found his voice in the public sphere. Included are seminal essays on the full range of Judt's concerns, including Europe as an idea and in reality, before 1989 and thereafter; Israel, the Holocaust and the Jews; American hyperpower and the world after 9/11; and issues of social inclusion and social justice in an age of increasing inequality. Judt was at once most at home and in a state of what he called internal exile from his native England, from Europe, and from America, and he finally settled in New York--between them all. He was a historian of the twentieth century acutely aware of the dangers of ethnic exceptionalism, and if he was shaped by anything, it was the Jewish past and his own secularism. His essays on Israel ignited a firestorm debate for their forthright criticisms of Israeli government polices relating to the Palestinians and the occupied territories. Those crucial pieces are published here in book form for the first time, including an essay, never previously published, called 'What Is to Be Done?' These pieces are suffused with a deep compassion for the Israeli dilemma, a compassion that instilled in Judt a sense of responsibility to speak out and try to find a better path, away from what he saw as a road to ruin. When the Facts Change also contains Judt's homages to the culture heroes who were some of his greatest inspirations: Amos Elon, Francois Furet, Leszek Kolakowski, and perhaps above all Albert Camus, who never accepted the complacent view that the problem of evil couldn't lie within us as well as outside us. Included here too is a magnificent two-part essay on the social and political importance of railway travel to our modern conception of a good society; as well as the urgent text of 'What Is Living and What Is Dead in Social Democracy,' the final public speech of his life, delivered from a wheelchair after he had been stricken with a terrible illness; and a tender and wise dialogue with his then-teenage son, Daniel, about the different outlooks and burdens of their two generations. To read When the Facts Change is to miss Tony Judt's voice terribly, but to cherish it for what it was, and still is: a wise, human, deeply informed view on our most pressing concerns, delivered in good faith.

The plague by Albert Camus( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The townspeople of Oran are in the grip of a deadly plague, which condemns its victims to a horrifying death. Fear, isolation and claustrophobia follow as they are forced into quarantine, each responding in their own way to the lethal bacillus: some resign themselves to fate, some seek blame and a few, like Dr Rieux, resist the terror
