Product Details


“Losurdo’s book, fruit of a continuous intertwining of historical investigations and philosophical reflections, not only constitutes a criticism of historical revisionism but also does not want to be just an invitation to look to the past to better understand the century behind us: it contains precious tools for criticising the war ideology that the West seems to want to reinstate today.”
– Stefano G. Azzarà & Leonardo Pecoraro, International Critical Thought (in praise of  War and Revolution)

“War and Revolution: Rethinking the Twentieth Century is a relentless document. It is dense and disconcerting. This is precisely why it should be considered one of the most important history books written since … 9-11.”
– Ron Jacobs, CounterPunch (in praise of War and Revolution)

“Stimulatingly uncovers the contradictions of an ideology that is much too self-righteously invoked.”
– Pankaj Mishra (in priase of Liberalism: A Counter-History), Guardian
