The Intellectual Resistance in Europe

By James D. Wilkinson
Harvard University Press, 1981
358 pp. $20.00

A major effort to recreate the thoughts and moral beliefs of Resistance intellectuals during and immediately after World War II in three countries: France, Italy and Germany. A kind of collective intellectual biography of a generation that, under vastly differing circumstances, thought that fascism and war had imposed on it a special responsibility and unique opportunities. A superb topic, handled with exceptional skill and empathy.
