Farewell from a great historian.,
This review is from: The Memory Chalet (Hardcover)
Tony Judt's reputation will rest on his earlier, fuller work, particularly "Postwar" and perhaps his later "Ill Fares the Land". "The Memory Chalet", written in the final stages of a severely disabling and premature terminal illness, stands as a memorial of a remarkably courageous and determined man who, even in extremis,can survey the events of his times with a wisdom, intellect and vision that offer much to a twenty-first century reader.
