Tony Judt Quote: “Popularizing – much less venturing beyond…”

Popularizing – much less venturing beyond one’s secure turf – was frowned upon for many years. I think I probably internalized the prohibition, even though I was – and knew I was – among the best speakers and writers of my age cohort. I don’t mean I was the best historian – a quite different measure.
