Written in Paris in 1951, while he was in exile from his native Poland, Milosz's denunciation of Stalinism outraged many European intellectuals at a time when they were becoming drawn to the politics of Communist Russia. However, it is now acknowledged as a classic work against totalitarianism, standing alongside those of Orwell and Solzhenitsyn. The Captive Mind analyses the power of tyrannical regimes to enslave men and women, not just through terror, but through ideas, achieving 'mastery over the human spirit'. Championing intellectual freedom, Milosz's brilliantly perceptive polemic played a significant liberating role in Poland, and is still relevant and chilling today.

A thought, although invisible and intangible, has the power to change our lives in the most visible and tangible ways. What power is found in the human mind! Power to build. Power to destroy. Power to inspire and power to discourage. How do we ensure that the mind's power is used for God's glory? In 2 Corinthians 10, we are reminded of the spiritual attacks on our minds and given divine weapons for the battle. When we allow God's word to guide our thoughts and beliefs, everything changes. We can evict old thinking and experience new life. It's time to take captive every thought through the power of Christ Jesus. "The book you are holding in your hands is a game changer." --Priscilla Shirer, Author of Gideon and Armor of God; Actress, War Room

We have entered an age of forgetting. Our world, we insist, is unprecedented, wholly new. The past has nothing to teach us. Drawing provocative connections between a dazzling range of subjects, from Jewish intellectuals and the challenge of evil in the recent European past to the interpretation of the Cold War and the displacement of history by heritage, the late historian Tony Judt takes us beyond what we think we know of the past to explain how we came to know it, showing how much of our history has been sacrificed in the triumph of myth-making over understanding and denial over memory. Reappraisals offers a much-needed road map back to the historical sense we urgently need.
