Editorial Reviews


"'Hope and Memory is a book with wisdom on every page. If you want to understand the 20th century and be forewarned against the 21st, you must read it.' John Gray, Independent 'Graceful and gigantic...a fascinating tour through the subtlety, integrity, and brute honesty of Todorov's thought.' The New York Times Book Review 'Todorov invigorates the debate over morality with rigor and grace, Aristotelian fineness, fluid prose, and his own virtues of compassion, humility, and realism.' Washington Post"
