Western Intellectuals in Search of the Good Society
Publication Date: 01-01-1997
Also available as:Google eBook
DescriptionThe phrase "political pilgrim" has become part of intellectual discourse thanks to Paul Hollander. Even in the post-communist era the questions raised by this book remain relevant as many Western, and especially American, intellectuals seek to come to terms with a world that offers few models of secular fulfillment and has tarnished the reputation of political utopias. Hollander's new and lengthy introduction updates the pilgrimages and examines current attempts to find substitutes for the emotional and political energy that used to be invested in them.
Editorial Reviews"A horribly funny book ... to be kept close at hand and reread whenever we are told of a land where ... the human soul is re-engineered and human nature is uplifted." —The Washington Post
