    Gertrude Himmelfarb (Author)
One of the world's most distinguished intellectual historians explores the minds and lives of some of the most provocative thinkers of modern times. Among the lives and personalities she expores are: Edmund Burke, Jane Austen and George Eliot, Charles Dickens and Disraeli, John Stuart Mill, Walter Bagehot and Winston Churchill. They exemplify what Edmund Burke two centuries ago, and recently Lionel Trilling, have called 'the moral imagination'. Gertrude Himmelfarb describes how each of these thinkers, coming from different traditions, responding to different concerns and writing in different genres share a moral passion that permeates their work. iti s the liveliness of their imaginations that make these reflections - on politics and literature, religion and society, marriage and sex - unpredictable, often controversial and as illuminating and pertinent today as they were then.
