On Looking Into the Abyss
Untimely Thoughts on Culture and SocietyBook - 1994
In On Looking Into the Abyss one of our most distinguished historians--author of Victorian Minds and Poverty and Compassion--brings her prodigious learning and authoritative moral vision to bear on the present. In particular, Gertrude Himmelfarb is concerned with exposing the intellectual arrogance and spiritual impoverishment of our most fashionable current ideas--and with tracing their dire consequences for our collective life.
