'A remarkable achievement...The knowledge is marshalled here with the skill and authority of a great general, and from it a large strategic argument emerges with clarity and force...a brilliantly thoughtful and eloquent book which deserves to be read with the greatest attention and respect.' – Philip Toynbee in the Observer

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0300069162, Paperback)

""This book is important--and portentous--for if it is true that tragedy is dead, we face a vital cultural loss. . . . The book is bound to start controversy. . . . The very passion and insight with which he writes about the tragedies that have moved him prove that the vision still lives and that words can still enlighten and reveal.""-R.B. Sewall, New York Times Book Review
