Paradise Regained records what Djilas himself has called the rambling conversations shared by intellectuals who have grown old, each with a distinctly different experience. Their mutual respect is reflected in Sulzberger's recollections of their often spirited and frank discussions. Sulzberger provides what may be Djilas' final opportunity to expound on the great events of the twentieth century as he saw them and what he learned from a life marked by significant political power as well as twenty-nine years with no or restricted personal freedom. He provides a new, more human perspective of a key figure in Eastern European politics. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of the twentieth century and will also prove engrossing as one man's personal testament to a friend.
