From a cached copy of a review by Gertrude Himmelfarb in The New Republic in November 2001:
We have had occasion recently to recall the past--Churchill's past as well as our own--and to find in it intimations of our present and future. Among other things that we are rediscovering in the past is the idea of greatness--great individuals, great causes, great civilizations. It is no accident that Churchill has re-emerged now, at a time when the West is again under assault. And it is no small comfort to be reminded of the spirit that triumphed over far greater odds in a far more perilous time.
