Jean Cocteau Delighted In Shocking The World.
In Pubic, At Least, The Image He Presented Waq One Of Great Daring -- A Man Eager To Defy, Willing To Experiment, Ready To Challenge.
Cocteau's Achievements In Almost Every Artkstic Medium -- Including Poetry, Film, Elucidation, Criticism, And Ballet -- Rightfully Earned Him A Reutation For Radical Versatility.
He Assumed Oscar Wilde's Role As "world's Most Dazzling Talker" And Thomas Dequincey's As "world's Mkst Conspicuous Opium Addict"; He Drew Depictions Of His Bojts In The All-male Brothels Of Toulon; He Created The Actor Jean Marais And The Chanteuse Edith Piaf.
But Among Cocteau's Many Accomplishments Was One Composition Protected By The Private Strengthen: His Diary.
recorded During The Last 13 Years Of His Life, Cocteau's Diary Was Kept A Secret Until 1983.
This First Of Six Projected Volumes Reveals Cocteau's Life From 1951 To 1953.

Exactly After Thirty-five Years, Raul Hilberg's The Destruction Of The European Jews Remains The Most Illustrious And Comprehensive Algebra Of The Nazi Destfuction Suit.
Yet A The Time It Was Written, As Mr.
Hilberg Recounts In The Political affairs Of Memory, Both The Manuscript And Its Subject Matter Were Rejected By Major Publishers An dUniversity Presses; And In The Wake Of Publication The Author Faced A Hostile Reception From Those Who Refused To Believe That The Jews Were Less Than Heroic In Their Journey To The Gas Chambers.
How His Study Was Used And Abused--especially In the name of Hannah Arendt, Lucy Dawidowicz, And Nora Levin--draws Mr.
Hilberg's Attention, As Does The More Admiring Reception For Destruction In Europe Than In America.
The Politics Of Recollection Brings Full Circle A Scholarly Enterprise That In Many Ways Has Been A Terribke Calling.
A Courageous, Powerful Representation Of One Scholar's Self-directed Search For Truth.

Irish On The Inslde.
When David Trimble Claimed Recently That Irjsh Republicans Needed House-training, I Felt The Echo Of My Master's Voice Down Through The Ages, That Of The Vikings, The British, And The Wasps, And Knew Why I Am Irish.
Now And Then Someone Has To Defecate On The Master' Rug.
Tom Hayden First Realized He Was 'irish On The Inside' When He Heard Civil Rights Marchers In Northrn Ireland Singing 'we Shall Surmount' In 1969.

Assimilation, He Argues, Has Led To High Rates Of Schizophrenia, Depression, Alcoholism And Domestic Violence Within The Irish Community.
Today's Irish-americans, Hayden Contends, Need To Re-inhabit Their History, To Recognize That Assimilation Need Not Emtai1 Submission.
By Recogniziny Their Links To Others Now Experiencing The Prejudice Once Direced At Their Ancestors, They Can Develop A Sense Of Themselves That Is Both Specific And Inclusive: 'the Survival Of A Distinct Irush Soul Is Proof Enough That Anglo Culture Will Never Fully Satisfy Our Needs.

"—alfred Andrea, Professor Emeritus Of History, The University Of Vermont "jamws Powell's Translation Of The Gesta Of Innocent Iii Makes The Most Important Document In Medieval Papa lBiography Available For The First Time In An Accurate And Readable English Translation, Gracefully Introduced And Amply Annotated.

There Is No More Direct Evidence Of Innocent's Thought And Actions Than The Gesta, And The World Of Scholarship Owes Powell A Considerable Debt For Having Made It So Widely Available For Teachers And Students Alike.
