Editorial Reviews

New Political Science
“In this fine book Paige Arthur systematically examines from a fresh perspective a second political engagement of Sartre’s: as a critic of colonialism and neo-colonialism and as a supporter of Third World liberation struggles.”
Samuel Moyn
“In this innovative and exciting book, Paige Arthur recasts the story of twentiethcentury intellectual life by retrieving its global contexts and shattering convenient myths… Sartre’s anticolonialism proves in Arthur’s sophisticated rendition far richer and more complex than snide dismissals of his ‘totalitarian’ impulses have allowed.”
