New York Review of Books May 26th 2005

The New York Review of Books (Vol LII, 9, May 26th 2005) contains much of interest. Setting aside John Updike on Max Ernst and Surrealism, there's a new book by William Pfaff (The Bullet's Song: Romantic Violence and Utopia), John Banville on Ian McEwan's Saturday ('a dismayingly bad book'), a biography of J.K.Galbraith, a biography of Andre Malraux, Romeo Dallaire's autobiographical account of his time as UN commander in Rwanda in 1994, a volume on Science and Polity in France: The Revolutionary and Napoelonic Years and Keith Thomas writing about some of Quentin Skinner many luminous writings. Not enough is available for free.
