Tim B

Clear, focused and necessary!

by Tim B on Oct 25, 2012

James' book of essays is an absolute must for anyone in search of the light who does not want to be burdened by polemics or ideology; his lucid style and clear thought are a fascinating and edifying guide through the worlds of history, politics, religion and culture. Bravo for an exhilarating voyage through the sparkling waters of the mind of a brilliant cultural traveler!

Cultural Amnesia

by John L on Aug 11, 2011

Excellent, perceptive series of comments and evaluations about writers, artiists, and thinkers in much of the 20th century at an unbeatable price.

Great book

by joblack on Jun 7, 2007

This book covers a lot of important writers, artists and there work (and gives you some new ideas how to interprete the world). But be warned. It is not a book for one time reading. You need patience, time and sometimes a dictionary. Nothing more to say .. just get it ;=).
