"I cannot have in mind while i have realized as a lot from anything i have read—or laughed as a lot whereas doing it."—Jacob Weisberg, Slate

Finally in paperback after six hardcover printings, this foreign bestseller is an encyclopedic A-Z masterpiece—the excellent advent to the very center of Western humanism. Clive James rescues, or sometimes destroys, the careers of the various maximum thinkers, humanists, musicians, artists, and philosophers of the 20 th century. hovering to Montaigne-like heights, Cultural Amnesia is strictly the e-book to burnish those stories of a Western civilization that James fears is almost lost.
