Beschreibung

In this unprecedented critique, Bernard-Henri Lévy revisits his political roots, scrutinizes the totalitarianisms of the past as well as those on the horizon, and argues powerfully for a new political and moral vision for our times. Are human rights Western or universal? Does anti-Semitism have a future, and, if so, what will it look like? And how is it that progressives themselves-those who in the past defended individual rights and fought fascism-have now become the breeding ground for new kinds of dangerous attitudes: an unthinking loathing of Israel; an obsessive anti-Americanism; an idea of "tolerance” that, in its justification of Islamic fanaticism, for example, could become the "cemetery of democracies”; and an indifference, masked by relativism, to the greatest human tragedies facing the world today?

At a time of ideological and political transition in America, Left in Dark Times articulates the threats we all face-in many cases without our even being aware of it-and offers a powerful new vision for progressives everywhere.

Bernard-Henri Lévy is a philosopher, journalist, activist, and filmmaker. He was hailed by
Vanity Fair magazine as “Superman and prophet: we have no equivalent in the United States.” Among his dozens of books are
American Vertigo,
Barbarism with a Human Face, and
Who Killed Daniel Pearl? His writing has appeared in a wide range of publications throughout Europe and the United States. His films include the documentaries
Bosna! and
A Day in the Death of Sarajevo. Lévy is co-founder of the antiracist group SOS Racism and has served on diplomatic missions for the French government.
