Product Description

Review

Unlike many veterans of 1968, Fred Halliday never stopped listening and observing and thinking in the present tense. There are fresh insights and shafts of enlightenment on every page of this invigorating collection of essays. Whatever the subjects from Auschwitz to Armenia, Beirut to Barcelona Halliday s knowledge, imagination and intellectual independence illuminate them all. --Francis Wheen

Fred Halliday s Political Journeys range over wide intellectual and political landscapes, with brilliant insights, absorbing narratives, lucid writing and subtle humour. The Middle East, the Cold War, Islamism, imperialism and international relations, the dilemmas of our time, are all illuminated with deep analyses coupled with passionate commitment to the universal values of justice and human rights. --Sami Zubaida

[Fred] shaped the fields in which he worked through powerful insight, clarity of writing and a passionate commitment to his subjects ... He revelled in simplifying complexity, debunking myths and challenging conventional wisdoms.' The Times --The Times

'Halliday died last year. His passion, reason and learning were never needed more than now. This book is an important reminder of one of the most thoughtful and humane figures on the international left.' --David Herman The New Statesman --Reviews
