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

105 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 3,711 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 )

88 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in 15 languages and held by 1,410 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
The burden of responsibility : Blum, Camus, Aron, and the French twentieth century by Tony Judt( Book )

33 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 867 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
Past imperfect : French intellectuals, 1944-1956 by Tony Judt( Book )

22 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 863 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A political analysis of the years between 1944-1956, reprinted to commemorate the work of Tony Judt
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 3 languages and held by 669 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 498 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
Resistance and revolution in Mediterranean Europe, 1939-1948( Book )

12 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first general study of communism in Mediterranean Europe, shedding fresh light on the origins of Europe's present East-West divide

13 editions published in 1976 in French and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

18 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 200 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( )

13 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

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

15 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 91 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.

Pensar el siglo XX by Tony Judt( Book )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El siglo XX se erige como la edad de las ideas, un tiempo en el que, para bien o para mal, el pensamiento de unos pocos se impuso sobre las vidas de muchos. De una claridad y lucidez sin precedentes, el último libro de Tony Judt, uno de los más incisivos historiadores contemporáneos, está destinado a convertirse en un clásico del pensamiento moderno. Pensar el siglo XX es a la vez un libro de historia, una biografía y un tratado de ética. Es una historia de las ideas políticas modernas en Occidente. Pero es también la biografía intelectual de Judt, nacido en Londres justo después del cataclismo que supusieron la Segunda Guerra Mundial y el Holocausto, cuando el comunismo afianzaba su poder en Europa del Este. La excepcional naturaleza de esta obra se revela en su propia estructura: una serie de conversaciones íntimas con su amigo el historiador Timothy Snyder en las que Judt, con asombrosa elocuencia y erudición, rescata a los pensadores que han dado forma al mundo en que vivimos, presentando sus triunfos y fracasos. Es, por último, una reflexión sobre la necesidad de la perspectiva histórica y de las consideraciones morales en la transformación de nuestra sociedad. Al recuperar lo mejor de la vida intelectual del siglo XX, abre el camino a una moral para el siglo XXI. Este es un libro sobre el pasado pero es también un libro sobre la clase de futuro al que deberíamos aspirar
Nachdenken über das 20. Jahrhundert by Tony Judt( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in German and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das 20. Jahrhundert war das Zeitalter der politischen Visionen. Die unversöhnlichen Konflikte zwischen Kommunismus, Liberalismus und Faschismus hinterließen auch in Tony Judts Familie tiefe Spuren: seine Cousine starb in Auschwitz, sein Vater war Marxist, er selbst begeisterte sich für die Kibbuz-Bewegung in Israel, erlebte 1968 in Paris, das neoliberale Großbritannien unter Thatcher und schließlich, 1989, das Ende des Kommunismus in Europa. In seinem letzten Buch verbindet der 2010 verstorbene Historiker, unterstützt von seinem Freund Timothy Snyder, kenntnisreich und kritisch die persönliche Erinnerung mit einer Bilanz der großen politischen Ideen der Moderne. Ein Buch, das selbst Geschichte machen wird. (Verlagstext)
Cuando los hechos cambian : Artículos, 1995-2010 by Tony Judt( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Por el autor de Postguerra, Algo va mal y Pensar el siglo XX Ya sea analizando a Marx o a los hermanos Marx, la Unión Europea o la ONU, Oriente Próximo o la función social de los ferrocarriles, la capacidad y la claridad de Judt son magistrales. Lejos de tratarse de uno de esos rescates forzados que suelen caracterizar las publicaciones póstumas, esta es una gran incorporación a la obra de Judt. Max Liu, The IndependentCuando los hechos cambian es la colección esencial de textos de Tony Judt, inéditos en castellano, e incluye algunos de sus artículos más influyentes y polémicos, escritos durante la etapa (1999-2010) en que encontró su voz en la esfera pública. Este libro refleja el gradual desencanto de Occidente tras el eufórico fin de la Guerra Fría; la preocupación de Judt ante el desmantelamiento del Estado de bienestar; su lúcida postura ante cuestiones como el imperialismo estadounidense, el conflicto de Oriente Próximo o la justicia social en una era de desigualdad; y, sobre todo, su enorme capacidad de conectar la historia con la actualidad.La crítica ha dicho... Esta es una recopilación de artículos, pero es también una recopilación de obsesiones. Las obsesiones de Tony. Están todas aquí: Europa y Estados Unidos, Israel y Oriente Próximo, la justicia, la esfera pública, el Estado, las relaciones internacionales, la memoria y el olvido, y, por encima de todo ello, la historia. Jennifer Homans Los hechos no han cambiado lo suficiente. No es de extrañar que este libro, y el papel de crítico político que desempeñó Judt, sigan siendo tan relevantes. Samuel Moyn, The New York Times Tony Judt fue un historiador cuya faceta periodística dio lugar a algunos de sus mejores textos. Sus comentarios públicos y su erudición histórica conforman una visión única del mundo; sus ensayos nos recuerdan lo que ganamos al apegarnos a unos estándares éticos e intelectuales exigentes, y lo que perdemos cuando permitimos que se nos deslicen entre los dedos. Mark Mazower, Financial Times El sello distintivo de estos ensayos es su enorme capacidad de mirar no solo atrás sino también adelante, y a menudo con un extraordinario poder predictivo. Tim Bouverie, The Spectator Judt es toda una autoridad, que aborrece el derramamiento de sangre pero disfruta con el combate verbal. Es el intelectual de los intelectuales. Niall Ferguson Tal vez debería mostrar mis cartas: soy un gran fan de Judt. En mi opinión, todo lo que escribió, desde sus primeros libros sobre la izquierda francesa a mediados del siglo XX hasta sus mordaces ensayos de la New York Review of Books, se distingue por una notable agudeza, honestidad y perspicacia intelectual. Dominic Sandbrook, Literary Review
