Summary
"War and Revolution is an original rereading of contemporary history, linking trends of historical revisionism in historiography to an investigation of fundamental philosophical and political categories, such as international civil war, revolution, totalitarianism and genocide. Losurdo begins from the revisionist theses of Ernst Nolte on the Holocaust and of Francois Furet on the French Revolution, and ends with the Anglophone imperial revivalists Paul Johnson and Niall Ferguson. Losurdo captivates the reader with a history of modern revolt that is a tour de force, giving a new perspective on comparisons between the English, American, French and twentieth-century revolutions"--
