    NYU Press 2011; US$ 22.10

    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... more...

  • Past Imperfectby Tony Judt

    NYU Press 2011; US$ 22.10

    Swept up in the vortex of communism, French postwar intellectuals developed a blind spot to Stalinist tyranny.

  • Marxism and the French Leftby Tony Judt

    NYU Press 2011; US$ 21.25

    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.

    NYU Press 2011; US$ 19.55

    ?I am enthusiastically European; no informed person could seriously wish to return to the embattled, mutually antagonistic circle of suspicious and introverted nations that was the European continent in the quite recent past. But it is one thing to think an outcome desirable, quite another to suppose it is possible. It is my contention that a truly... more...

    Random House 2010; US$ 14.09

    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. In 2008, historian Tony Judt learnt that he was suffering from a disease that would eventually trap... more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 2005; US$ 38.00

  • Language, Nation, and Stateby Tony Judt; Denis Lacorne

    Palgrave Macmillan 2004; US$ 120.00

They needed to talk to one another, and the time... more...
