really liked it
Read in January, 2009

This is the kind of book for which the word "magisterial" was invented--the product of an astonishing amount of learning, thoughtfully synthesized. Judt also writes very well, and although he is never polemical, he does not shrink from opining on his subjects.

I can't imagine a better introduction to the subject.
