  • Description or summary of the book: Robert Conquest has been called by Paul Johnson 'our greatest living modern historian.' As a new century begins, Conquest offers an illuminating examination of our past failures and a guide to where we should go next. Graced with one of the most acute gifts for political prescience since Orwell, Conquest assigns responsibility for our century's cataclysms not to impersonal economic or social forces but to the distorted ideologies of revolutionary Marxism and National Socialism. The final, sobering chapters of Reflections on a Ravaged Century concern themselves with some coming storms, notably that of the European Union, which Conquest believes is an economic, cultural, and geographical misconception divisive of the West and doomed to failure. Winner of the Ingersoll Prize; winner of the Richard M. Weaver Prize; a New York Times Notable Book. 'Provides many glowing embers of reasoned and wise argument.'-Richard Bernstein, The New York Times 'A book that ought to be required reading for everyone about to enter college, and by every member of Congress.'-Frank Wilson, Philadelphia Inquirer
