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

109 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 3,712 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
Ill fares the land by Tony Judt( Book )

91 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in 16 languages and held by 1,414 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 6 languages and held by 1,359 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.--From
The memory chalet by Tony Judt( Book )

45 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 956 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It might be thought the height of poor taste to ascribe good fortune to a healthy man with a young family struck down at the age of sixty by an incurable degenerative disorder from which he must shortly die. But there is more than one sort of luck
The burden of responsibility : Blum, Camus, Aron, and the French twentieth century by Tony Judt( Book )

33 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 868 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

22 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 864 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The politics of retribution in Europe : World War II and its aftermath by István Deák( Book )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and Italian and held by 725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The presentation of Europe's immediate historical past has quite dramatically changed. Conventional depictions of occupation and collaboration in World War II, of wartime resistance and post-war renewal, provided the familiar backdrop against which the chronicle of post-war Europe has mostly been told. Within these often ritualistic presentations, it was possible to conceal the fact that not only were the majority of people in Hitler's Europe not resistance fighters but millions actively co-operated with and many millions more rather easily accommodated to Nazi rule. Moreover, after the war, those who judged former collaborators were sometimes themselves former collaborators. Many people became innocent victims of retribution, while others--among them notorious war criminals--escaped punishment. Nonetheless, the process of retribution was not useless but rather a historically unique effort to purify the continent of the many sins Europeans had committed. This book sheds light on the collective amnesia that overtook European governments and peoples regarding their own responsibility for war crimes and crimes against humanity--an amnesia that has only recently begun to dissipate as a result of often painful searching across the continent. In inspiring essays, a group of internationally renowned scholars unravels the moral and political choices facing European governments in the war's aftermath: how to punish the guilty, how to decide who was guilty of what, how to convert often unspeakable and conflicted war experiences and memories into serviceable, even uplifting accounts of national history. In short, these scholars explore how the drama of the immediate past was (and was not) successfully "overcome." Through their comparative and transnational emphasis, they also illuminate the division between eastern and western Europe, locating its origins both in the war and in post-war domestic and international affairs. Here, as in their discussion of collaborators' trials, the authors lay bare the roots of the many unresolved and painful memories clouding present-day Europe. Contributors are Brad Abrams, Martin Conway, Sarah Farmer, Luc Huyse, Lászlo Karsai, Mark Mazower, and Peter Romijn, as well as the editors. Taken separately, their essays are significant contributions to the contemporary history of several European countries. Taken together, they represent an original and pathbreaking account of a formative moment in the shaping of Europe at the dawn of a new millennium.--Publisher description
Marxism and the French Left : studies in labour and politics in France, 1830-1981 by Tony Judt( Book )

29 editions published between 1985 and 2011 in English and French and held by 672 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
A grand illusion? : an essay on Europe by Tony Judt( Book )

32 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 497 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
Socialism in Provence, 1871-1914 : a study in the origins of the modern French left by Tony Judt( Book )

18 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in English and held by 471 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

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 201 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
Reappraisals : reflections on the forgotten twentieth century by Tony Judt( )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 162 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
