9780333720660: E.H.Carr: A Critical Appraisal

E.H. Carr (1892-1982) was born into security but lived a life of controversy. Attacked for appeasing both Hitler and Stalin, he was not only one of the most productive writers of the Twentieth-century but one of its most provocative as well. In this book - the first ever to deal critically but fairly with Carr's contribution to international relations, Soviet Studies and the study of history - sixteen internationally respected authors grapple with his complex intellectual legacy. For those seriously interested in understanding the life and times of this most English of establishment radicals this is the place to begin.

Review:

'By situating Carr's book historically so well...Cox et al have provided the strongest argument yet for leaving What is History? on the shelf as a theory-of-history primer for undergraduates.' - Simon Ditchfield, Times Higher Education Supplement

'Michael Cox's book gives a splendid opportunity to see the relevance of E.H. Carr's historical mode of thought: it leads the reader into the complexity of his ideas and leaves them with the challenge to take it a stage further in an analysis of the present...a particularly appropriate time for a reappraisal of his work...' - Robert Cox, Emeritus Professor, York University, Canada

'This fine collection makes a strong case for Carr's importance without seeking to gloss over the problems associated with his work. Moreover, the scale of the enterprise allows Michael Cox and his contributors to do full justice to all the various aspects of Carr's scholarship...This is a book that deserves a very wide readership.' - Chris Brown, London School of Economics and Political Science

'Michael Cox and his fellow contributors have produced an excellent critical study of E.H. Carr - one of the most interesting and controversial scholars of the twentieth century whose numerous writings provide a unique and important interpretation of that troubled era.' - Robert Gilpin, Princeton University

'The field of international relations has waited far too long for a critical reassessment of E.H. Carr, who emerges in these highly readable pages as a more complex, ambiguous and difficult figure than perhaps many of us had hitherto realized. The study of international relations will undoubtedly be enriched by his return.' - Justin Rosenberg, University of Sussex

'This is a fantastic array of appraisals of E.H. Carr that do full justice to his multifaceted and elusive achievement, fully acknowledging his towering presence in international relations, history and the study of the former Soviet Union...' - Richard Falk, Princeton University

'Clearly, as this volume shows, Carr's own intellectual and personal life is uniquely rich....Cox has assembled a variety of scholars to allow for a comprehensive assessment of Carr's intellectual biography...this variety makes the book a fascinating read in these days of specialized existence.' - Stefano Guzzini, MILLENNIUM

'Michael Cox's splendid 'critical appraisal' brings together fifteen experts who assess Carr's writings on Russian history, on the nature of historiography and on the science of international politics, as well as his involvement in foreign policy as a diplomat, as Times leader-writer, and the author of several powerful polemical tracts...[it] provides insights into many aspects of the personal and intellectual history of this fascinating individual.' - Roger Morgan, Government and Opposition

'Professor Cox's volume does very good justice to a man of enormous intellectual range...[his] collection is timely...To my mind this is an early and telling engagement with the complexities of what historians do. It is this that makes Carr still worthy of collections such as Professor Cox's...I would warmly recommend all historians who care about historical thinking and practice to read this collection.' - Alun Munslow, Reviews in History

'Michael Cox's book comes now as a fitting tribute to Carr, who died in 1982 - fitting insofar as it is a critical appraisal... [it] provides the elements with which to contemplate the complexity of Carr the man and Carr the historian.' - International Relations
