"For such slim books, the price is high - but so is the quality"
The Australian /Israel Review Aug-Sept 1998 - Reviewed by Danial Mandel
"Variously described as an angry young man, a sceptic, a conservative, an Oakeshottian, a pessimist and an imprialist, this book reveals much more about the man and his scholarship."
Jewish Journal of Sociology, vol. 40, Nos. 1&2, 1998
"The contributors to this memorial volume are unanimous in their praise for Elie Kedourie".
