Reviews
"John Lukacs has over the past forty years become one of the most interesting and popular historical writes in the United States. . . . [Last Rites] represents a capstone to an impressive intellectual achievement. . . . Lukacs's prose gives pleasure to his readers. He is a master of historical aphorisms and tart phrases that skewer sloppy authors and hapless historical actors. . . . A graceful summing up of [Lukacs's] life."--Lewis L. Gold, Magill's Literary Annual 2010--Lewis L. Gold "Magill's Literary Annual 2010 "
"Mr. Lukacs is one of the more incisive historians of the 20th century, and especially of the tangled events leading to World War II."--Joseph C./I>--Joseph C. Goulden "Washington Times "
"'Send the audience home wanting more', they say in the theater. With this beautiful book, by turns captivating, amusing and moving, John Lukacs has done just that."--John Jay Hughes, America-- (03/02/2009)
