The Crisis of Modern Times

Perspectives from The Review of Politics, 1939–62

edited by A. James McAdams (University of Notre Dame Press)


The Review of Politics, founded in 1939 by Waldemar Gurian, soon emerged as one of the leading U.S. journals of political and social theory. These collected essays from the journal’s beginning years showcase the critical thought of such distinguished authors as Hannah Arendt, Jacques Maritain, Leo Strauss and Yves Simon.

The editor is a professor of international affairs at Notre Dame and the director of the university’s Nanovic Institute for European Studies.
