About the Author

James D. Wilkinson is Associate Professor of History and of History and Literature, Harvard University.


Wilkinson has illuminated in a subtle and perceptive way a crucial period of European intellectual history. -- James Joll * The New Republic *
James D. Wilkinson's thought-provoking and richly detailed book tells how the war acted as a catalyst for this group, leading them into an intense period of self-examination. -- Kenneth Noble * New York Times Book Review *
Crisply written and well organized, his book has a swift pace... Wilkinson's summaries inspire confidence, just as his unobtrusive critical comments offer useful benchmarks. -- Jim Miller * Salmagundi *
This first work promises a brilliant career... Wilkinson's book is tight-knit, well-organized and structured, and couched in remarkably graceful and lucid prose. Indeed, for lucidity I can only compare it with the writing of Stuart Hughes... I think that a great many readers will turn to this study as the most thoughtful and enlightening account of an important though frustrating episode in intellectual history. -- Gordon Wright
