Took me forever to read. At least 70 years…quite an amazing book. Thorough, detailed, insightful. The journey from the moving of borders after WW1 to the mass moving of people post WW2, the fall of communism, the rise of Europe, the long denial of the holocaust and the defeat of fascism always tenuous (now sadly born out) just an amazing book. It could only take it in small chunks. Much of it does not stick in my porous brain. But what does. Wow.

This book put a lot of my thoughts in order for me. He answered a lot of questions I had about how we've come, as a society, to where we are. My only problem with the book was the lack of offered solutions beyond 'Young people need to get involved and reform from within.' (I'm paraphrasing.)

Tony Judt saw what was coming. I remember some of these as essays in the New York Review of Books. Written partially in response to the financial crises of 2008, along with the neoliberal crises of the decades before, the book reads as prescient now. Judt correctly predicts that leaders failing to solve real problems will lead to leaders attempting to solve fake problems, and here we are.
