Reisen Nach Innen und Aussen
Reisen Nach Innen und Aussen
By Ralf Dahrendorf
Deutsche Verlags-Anstalt, 1985, 287 pp

Twenty essays on major themes of our time, written by a foremost German thinker and doer, an observer of the world. He analyzes political and social realities (his essay on the new underclass is a masterpiece) in a moral-philosophical fashion and formulates his thoughts and impressions in a style all his own, often a novelist's evocation of different societies and of the self in relentless quest of comprehension.
