TomIll Fares the Land by Tony Judt, a great thinker who just died of a terrible illness last year. He was a public intellectual, and this book is his dying testament . . . . He was a great historian, and he talks about the last few decades, the economic crash, the trends toward self interest and selfishness and unbridled free marketeering and a return to the idea of the public good and shared values. I found it very stimulating.’’

Tom Rachman, author of The Imperfectionists
