“The Roots of Radicalism is a searching analysis of how radicalism in its many guises today came into being. Calhoun puts practices, rather than ideologies, front-and-center. His knowledge of history is profound, his explanations of different concepts of practice are luminous. The great virtue of this book is to make the trials of Western revolutionaries in the past speak to the upheavals now occurring elsewhere in the world.”
