In less than a generation, the headlong advance of globalization has altered structures of thought that had been essentially unchanged since the European industrial revolution. As a result, we have lost touch with a century of social thought and socially motivated activism. In the 24 essays in Reappraisals, Judt resurrects the key aspects of the world we have lost to remind us how important they still are to us now and to our future.

if not for the reader.....
The essays collected in this book are very interesting, of diverse topics and very personal but well informed and researched. This would be a great enjoyment, were it not for the reader, who struggles audibly to pronounce the - abundant - names of many languages and citations in French and Italian. I wouldn't mind the mistakes - there are few, but the breathtaking and taking off each time a name has to be pronounced was rather enervating....
