Part intellectual biography, part cultural history, and part history of the human sciences, this book is a reminder that the Second World War and the Cold War were a clash of cultures, not just ideologies. It examines how far intellectuals should involve themselves in politics. It also looks at US' relationship with Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran.
