Cultural Amnesia: Necessary Memories from History and the Arts


SKU: 9780393333541 Category: Tag: Product ID: 96870


This international bestseller is an encyclopedic A-Z masterpiece–the perfect introduction to the very core of Western humanism. Clive James rescues, or occasionally destroys, the careers of many of the greatest thinkers, humanists, musicians, artists, and philosophers of the twentieth century. Soaring to Montaigne-like heights, Cultural Amnesia is precisely the book to burnish these memories of a Western civilization that James fears is nearly lost.
