Reviews

"A pioneering and superbly documented study of a major intellectual figure of the European left. Cohen offers a fascinating analysis of the main trends within French and European social thought, the rise of structuralism, and the debate between Goldmann and the "anti-humanists." It broadens our understanding of Western Marxism."--Vladimir Tismaneanu, University of Maryland
"Without question one of the most stimulating works in intellectual history and theory to appear in the last two decades.... In examining the origins of Goldmann's ideas, the theorist's preoccupations ... and the enduring significance of his work, Cohen demonstrates a rare, broad-ranging mastery of theory and an ability, like that of Goldmann himself, to uncover the essential historical and social message located within the works of an individual author."--Choice
