    Review quote
    It is really a cautionary tale about the perils awaiting thoughtful men who are moved to act out the ancient dream of bringing bright ideas into the fog of political life "Fire and Ashes" leaves one with a sense of loss and regret, not so much at Ignatieff s failure at an enterprise that, by all accounts, including his own, was doomed from the outset. No, the regret one feels is for the gradual death of civility in politics that his book so vividly chronicles.--Paul Wilson"New York Review of Books" (04/24/2014)"
