Read full description of the books:
Entrámos numa era de esquecimento. Para o autor, o mundo de hoje é tão diferente daquele do de há algumas décadas que se perdeu a noção das nossas origens. Os resultados desta ignorância revelam-se agora calamitosos e o futuro não se afigura risonho. Perdemos os laços com um período de três gerações de debate político internacional, de pensamento e activismo social, já não sabemos como discutir assuntos cruciais para as políticas públicas e caiu em esquecimento o papel dos intelectuais no debate, na transmissão e até na defesa das ideias que moldaram essa época.
Numa obra que se lê como um roteiro para se ter a noção da história, de que tão urgentemente necessitamos, Tony Judt recupera assuntos tão díspares como o percurso de alguns intelectuais judeus e o desafio do mal, a interpretação da Guerra Fria, ou a memória do marxismo.
Uma obra importante para se perceber como é que a história deu lugar à criação de mitos, que se sobrepuseram ao entendimento e à memória.

Read information about the authorBorn in 1948, Tony Judt was raised in the East End of London by a mother whose parents had immigrated from Russia and a Belgian father who descended from a line of Lithuanian rabbis. Judt was educated at Emanuel School, before receiving a BA (1969) and PhD (1972) in history from the University of Cambridge.
Like many other Jewish parents living in postwar Europe, his mother and father were secular, but they sent him to Hebrew school and steeped him in the Yiddish culture of his grandparents, which Judt says he still thinks of wistfully. Urged on by his parents, Judt enthusiastically waded into the world of Israeli politics at age 15. He helped promote the migration of British Jews to Israel. In 1966, having won an exhibition to King's College Cambridge, he took a gap year and went to work on kibbutz Machanaim. When Nasser expelled UN troops from Sinai in 1967, and Israel mobilized for war, like many European Jews, he volunteered to replace kibbutz members who had been called up. During and in the aftermath of the Six-Day War, he worked as a driver and translator for the Israel Defense Forces.
But during the aftermath of the war, Judt's belief in the Zionist enterprise began to unravel. "I went with this idealistic fantasy of creating a socialist, communitarian country through work," Judt has said. The problem, he began to believe, was that this view was "remarkably unconscious of the people who had been kicked out of the country and were suffering in refugee camps to make this fantasy possible."
