A great thinker s final testament: a characteristically wise andforthright collection of essays spanning a career of extraordinaryintellectual engagement
In an age in which the lack of independent public intellectuals has often been sorely lamented, Tony Judt played a rare and valuable role, bringing together history and current events, Europe and America, the world as it was and as it is with what it should be. In "When the Facts Change," Tony Judt s widow and fellow historian Jennifer Homans has assembled an essential collection of Judt s most important and influential pieces written in the last fifteen years of his life, when he found his voice in the public sphere. These seminal essays reflect the full range of Judt s concerns, including Europe as an idea and in reality; Israel, the Holocaust, and the Jews; American hyperpower and the world after 9/11; and issues of social inclusion and social justice in a time of increasing inequality."
