New Left Review I/231, September-October 1998

Perry Anderson

A Reply to Norberto Bobbio

Dear Norberto Bobbio,

Let me say how much I appreciate your generous reply to my reflections on your book, Destra e Sinistra. I did not initially conceive this text for publication and later considered doing so only if you thought a response worthwhile. No reader of De Senectute would wish to cause you unnecessary distractions. So I am all the more touched by your reply. Since there is such substantial agreement between us on the main issues at stake, I can be quite brief in my response to your arguments. There are only five short points I should like to make.
