Reviews

"Ignatieff has invoked the understanding, the wisdom, and the eloquence of some of the seminal thinkers in the Western tradition to help revive a sense of what we are or should be talking about when we talk about the needs of strangers."--Merle Rubin, "Christian Science Monitor"
"A very eloquent meditation . . . on what we need to be human and how in our society those 'with resources and those in need remain strangers to each other.'"--Des Christy, "The Guardian" (London)
"Unusual, beautifully written and profoundly thoughtful."--Bernard Crick, " New Statesman"
"Ignatieff writes in urgent prose that even, at times, sounds a little evangelistic; and he will convince many people, in highly readable fashion, that the ideas being discussed really matter, that they are important to argue over; and that passion is admirable, because they do, and they are."--Salman Rushdie, "Manchester Guardian Weekly"""
