Thursday, January 9, 2020

Mark Mazower (Ira D. Wallach Professor of World Order Studies; Director, Columbia Institute for Ideas and Imagination) reviews Julian Jackson's new biography of de Gaulle for the New York Review of Books (Jan. 16, 2020).

"There was no better exponent of the dramaturgy of public life in twentieth-century Europe, a kind of theater that has vanished completely amid the endless noise of contemporary politics."
