Reviews / Endorsements

“Intensely personal, unsystematic, impassioned, partial, utopian, the essays illuminate central insights of [Campus’s] imaginative works.” Freedom Review

“In this remarkable series of brief documents we get an inspiring picture of a man blessed with sanity and courage…Camus was one of the most sane and honest men of the century, and this document records for the first time in English his complete editorials for Combat, which will serve as a warning to revolutionaries even in the centuries to come.”Booklist
