    1. Spicuiri din recenzia finala care se gaseste pe blogul meuAșa cum și-a obișnuit cititorii, Besancon și de această dată construiește un discurs foarte bine argumentat, un discurs care arată, daca mai era cazul, că omenirea are în momentul de față o foarte mare problemă: nu a pedepsit, și nici nu dă semne că are de gând să o facă, comunismul așa cum a făcut-o cu nazismul.Motivul pentru care autorul a purces la scrierea eseului de față este unul extrem de banal și trist: la [...]

    2. I am in the midst of this work by French historian & culture critic Alain Besancon. It is a terrifying read, for the shear numbers of lives stolen by these regimes is unthinkable. But, if we turn away and don't allow ourselves to delve into this history now and again, we will lose our way, and the shameful actions of mankind forgotten. A scant 118 pages. From the jacket:"Alain Besancon's A Century of Horrors shows that, contrary to the opinion of most Western intellectuals, communism as much [...]

    3. Atractiva si necesara. Lucrarea scrisa de Alain Besancon arunca o lumina indreptatita asupra diferentelor de tratament aplicate in cazul celor mai criminale ideologii ale secolului al XX-lea: nazismul si comunismul. Aparentei amnezii care ii este aplicata comunismului, ii este suprapusa "hipermnezia" orientata spre nazism. Incursiunea autorului in ceea ce priveste distrugerile morale, umane si spirituale reprezinta extraordinare campuri de reflectie. In ceea ce priveste Shoahul (catastrofa), aut [...]

    4. So good!An honest look at the most horrific tragedies of the 20th century: communism & nazism, with a renewed emphasis on the collective amnesia of the former. Very sobering, but excellent.I was surprised at the theological angle the book came at, analyzing the anti-Christian stance of communism and nazism. Highly recommended!
