Hope and Memory:
Lessons from the Twentieth Century
Tzvetan Todorov
Translated by David Bellos

Book Description | Table of Contents
Prologue [HTML] or [PDF format] | Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]

ENDORSEMENTS:

"Almost alone among contemporary critics, Tzvetan Todorov has chosen to apply his prodigious talents to the literature of twentieth-century totalitarianism. His unique gift is his ability to elucidate the memoirs and writings of some of the century's greatest survivors, not merely discovering their literary qualities but also finding in their works moral and political lessons relevant to us all."--Anne Applebaum

"This is a very rich book, full of interesting--and often highly controversial--conversation as well as moving portraits of striking figures of the century that has just passed. It is addressed to a general public very much engaged in discussing what the twentieth century was all about and where we are going from here."--Charles Taylor
