Confessions Of An Original Sinner

By John Lukacs
Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1989
331 pp. $18.95

This commentary on the intellectual history of twentieth-century Europe and America, cast in the form of autobiography by a Hungarian-born historian who came to the United States immediately after World War II, is beautifully written. It reflects the author's independent conservatism and his conviction that ideas count, that they shape material conditions rather than standing as mere emanations of those conditions.
