Tzvetan Todorov examines the horrors of the 20th century and attacks the doctrine of pre-emptive war in Hope and Memory. This book, intended as a reflection on the appalling European century from which we have emerged, analyses totalitarianism and democracy.

It is addressed to a general public very much engaged in discussing what the twentieth century was all about and where we are going from here.' Charles Taylor
