Overview

History was scheduled to end about the beginning of the 20th century, historian and political scientist Luzkow points out, but the triumph of capitalism and individuality was sidetracked by the Fascist and Communist revolutions seeking more collectivist approaches to society. He argues that the failure of both of those does not mean the end of history, that religious fundamentalism, ethnic fratricide, resurgent tribalism, and ancient recollections of empire and civilization have helped revive, remember, and reshape the past. He examines the situation in Europe, Russia and the eternally recurring past at the edge of Europe, and whether there is in fact any exit from the past. The text is double spaced.
