"One of Daniel Mahoney's great merits is to reconstitute, on the basis of de Gaulle's writings, de Gaulle's view of the whole, of politics and of the human condition in general. He shows in a convincing manner that, contrary to a reproach often leveled against him, de Gaulle was not at all "Nietzschean..,."I admire the fact that Daniel Mahoney--who already has published a remarkable work on Raymond Aron--understands French things so well. I admire even more the power of the work, the fertile passion and the intelligence with which he strives to comprehend the human meaning of politics."-from the foreword by Pierre Manent Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales
Shows de Gaulle's relevance to larger concerns of democracy and statesmanship.
