Wilkinson has illuminated in a subtle and perceptive way a crucial period of European intellectual history.—James Joll, The New Republic

James D. Wilkinson’s thought-provoking and richly detailed book tells how the war acted as a catalyst for this group, leading them into an intense period of self-examination.—Kenneth Noble, The New York Times Book Review
