Tony Judt

Enjoyed the southerly last night by reading Tony Judt's THE MEMORY CHALET.Interesting views on education. Judt has been described by his friend Prof. Thomas Nagel, a distinguished philosopher, as "an old-fashioned,academically conservative leftist". Judt /Nagel argue that there is no "incoherence in wanting to reduce economic stratification while preserving educational selection based on ability. That is just the common sense of the old left". Hear! Hear!
I also like Judt's attack on those historians who set up programs which are supposed to study minorities but which are an excuse to study themselves.
