Description

This extraordinarily wide-ranging study looks at the dilemmas of life today and shows how they need not have arisen. Portraits of living people and historical figures are placed alongside each other as Zeldin discusses how men and women have lost and regained hope, how they have learnt to have interesting conversations, how some have acquired an immunity to loneliness, how new forms of love and desire have been invented, how respect has become more valued than power, how the art of escaping from one's troubles has developed, why even the privileged are often gloomy, and why parents and children are changing their minds about what they want from each other.

Préface
'Theodore Zeldin's all-embracing history of our feelings through the ages [is] brilliantly original and unsettling A seductive and unusually thought provoking book' Sunday Telegraph

Auteur
Theodore Zeldin, educated at Birkbeck College London and Christ Church Oxford, is senior fellow of St Antony's College Oxford. He has been awarded the Wolfson Prize for History, been elected a member of the European Academy, and figures on the Magazine Littéraire's list of the hundred most important thinkers in the world today.
