About the Author

H. Stuart Hughes (1916-1999) was Professor of History, Emeritus, at the University of California, San Diego.


Written with Hughes' usual elegance, with an appealing mixture of engagement and detachment, the book gives a vivid picture of people who 'had in common a resolute moral sense'... An astoundingly compact and most informative sketch of contemporary dissidence. -- Fritz Stern * Foreign Affairs *
Writing with terse precision, [Hughes] surveys an astonishing range of figures and issues: the French novelist Michel Tournier; Milan Kundera; John Paul II and his role in the rise of Solidarity in Poland; the socialist fiasco in France; the flowering of the ecology movement in Germany... Hughes offers a useful introduction to the contemporary intellectual scene in Europe: his summaries of thinkers are models of lucid economy, authoritative in tone, usually generous in spirit. -- Jim Miller * Washington Post Book World *
Hughes is America's foremost interpreter of recent European intellectual history. * Christian Century *
