From the Publisher

"Underscores the writer''s profound erudition, lively wit, and passion for ideas of all shapes and sizes . . . Eco''s pleasure in such explorations is obvious and contagious." - Booklist

Inventing the Enemy
covers a wide range of topics on which Eco has written and lectured over the past ten years: from a disquisition on the theme that runs through his recent novel The Prague Cemetery - every country needs an enemy, and if it doesn''t have one, must invent it - to a discussion of ideas that have inspired his earlier novels (and in the process he takes us on an exploration of lost islands, mythical realms, and the medieval world); from indignant reviews of James Joyce''s Ulysses by fascist journalists of the 1920s and 1930s, to an examination of Saint Thomas Aquinas''s notions about the soul of an unborn child, to censorship and violence and WikiLeaks.

These are essays full of passion, curiosity, and obsession by one of the world''s most esteemed scholars and critically acclaimed, best-selling novelists.


"True wit and wisdom coexist with fierce scholarship inside Umberto Eco, a writer who actually knows a thing or two about being truly human." - Buffalo News

"Thought provoking . . . nuanced . . . the collection amply shows off Eco''s sophisticated, agile mind." - Publishers Weekly
