Synopsis

The twentieth century bears the indelible imprint of both communism and Nazism. Today, it sometimes seems as if the former is all but forgotten, at least among Western elites, while our cultural memory of the latter is an inextinguishable fire. This inequality is surprising and calls out for explanation, a task the French political thinker Alain Besan on attempts here in a wise and elegant meditation. In examining the horror and destruction caused by both of these terrible ideologies, Besan on finds that recourse to theology is necessary if we are to achieve even feeble illumination. He also explains why, even with the full knowledge of the extent of communism's crimes, the uniqueness of the Shoah ought to be accepted without reservation.

Alain Besancon is Director of Studies at L Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales in Paris. A specialist in Russian politics and intellectual history, he is the author of "The Forbidden Image: An Intellectual History of Iconoclasm" and "The Falsification of the Good: Soloviev and Orwell." This is the fourth book of Besancon s to appear in English.Ralph C. Hancock is Professor of Political Science at Brigham Young University. He also translated Philippe Beneton s "Equality by Default" for ISI Books Crosscurrents series."
