Elie Kedourie has been variously described as an angry young man, a sceptic, a conservative, an Oakeshottian, a pessimist, an imperialist, a Zionist, an anti-Zionist, an anti-Arab, and lately even starry-eyed about imperialism - all labels which attempt to categorize the scholar but reveal nothing about the man or his work.
In his work, much solid and documentary evidence was brought in order to marshal his fresh arguments and novel interpretations. It has thus created, in more than one area, new understanding and new attitudes. This book is not a biography. It is a collection of essays evaluating Kedourie's work and his legacy to scholarship. The various contributors, ranging widely in interest and occupation, have indicated their relationship with him in their essays. Three pieces of his own work are included. One of his last essays, 'The Jews of Babylon and Baghdad', is published here for the first time.
