Product Details


“An intellectual thriller in the form of a polemic, with Inspector Berman hunting for clues… Maybe Berman’s book will start intellectuals talking, and not just about each other. Maybe some of the previously silent will begin to speak out against the death squads rather than snark about their victims and targets.”
Ron Rosenbaum, Slate

Praise for Paul Berman
“One of our most gifted essayists, a deeply pensive writer with a lyrical talent for imaginative synthesis.”
The Boston Globe

“One of America’s best exponents of recent intellectual history.”
The Economist

“Berman… has a fair claim to being regarded as the Benda of our time. In The Flight of the Intellectuals he continues his work of redeeming the good name of intellectuals by exposing the corrupt among them.”
—Anthony Julius, New York Times Book Review
“How do you distinguish a jihadist from a ‘moderate’ Muslim? Paul Berman’s Flight of the Intellectuals brilliantly dissects the moral confusion and cowardice that contrives to sway some brave men and women. Must reading for our times.”
—Harold Evans, Daily Beast
“Brilliant, uncompromising.”
—Michael Young, Slate
