About the Author

Zeev Sternhell, who won the 2008 Israel Prize in political science, is Leon Blum Professor of Political Science, Hebrew University.


"Few scholars comprehend the nexus between Counter-Enlightenment discourse and fascist ideology as well as Zeev Sternhell. In Anti-Enlightenment Tradition, Sternhell provides a series of provocative and disturbing arguments to demonstrate convincingly just how fraught and intimate those linkages were. Anti-Enlightenment Tradition represents a landmark and transformative contribution to the political history of ideas."-Richard Wolin, author of The Seduction of Unreason: The Intellectual Romance with Fascism from Nietzsche to Postmodernism -- Richard Wolin
"Zeev Sternhell is one of the most original scholars dealing with the historical roots of fascism and the European Right. This new book is a masterly synthesis which will generate vigorous debate and open new vistas for the understanding of contemporary political thought."-Saul Friedlander, author of The Years of Extermination -- Saul Friedlander

"In his The Anti-Enlightenment Tradition, Professor Sternhell has provided us another work of impeccable scholarship and intellectual stimulation. It is recommended to all who are interested in the fate of our civilization."-A. James Gregor, University of California, Berkeley -- A. James Gregor

"Everything Zeev Sternhell writes is powerful and challenging, and this book is no exception. At a time when Enlightenment values are again under attack, this history of anti-Enlightenment thought is important and timely."-Robert Tombs, University of Cambridge -- Robert Tombs
"In this learned and impassioned book, Zeev Sternhell mounts a major offensive against thinkers-be they conservative or liberal, from Edmund Burke to Isaiah Berlin-that he considers as the enemies of Enlightenment values. Even readers who disagree with Sternhell's thesis will have to admire the scope and force of his argument. This book is a crowning achievement of his long and distinguished career."-Susan Suleiman, author of Crisis of Memory and the Second World War -- Susan Suleiman
"Few people know the power of evil ideas more intimately than Zeev Sternhell."-Adam Kirsch, Tablet Magazine -- Adam Kirsch * Tablet Magazine *
