Details

"The vast political, economic, and social transformations taking place around the world, set off by the demise of Soviet communism, leave many modes of thought in shambles. In Lord Acton we find, if not an answer to our problems, at least a powerful mode of inquiry that deepens our understanding of how ideas, human nature, and institutions interact. Gertrude Himmelfarb provides us with a panorama of intellectual history seen through the ideas of Lord Acton...Lord Acton may persuade us not only that good government can be created, but that we must undertake this task if there is to be hope for a better world." - from the Foreword.
