Bertrand Russell was born in 1872 and died in 1970. One of the most influential figures of the twentieth century, he transformed philosophy and can lay claim to being one of the greatest philosophers of all time. He was a Nobel Prize winner for Literature and was imprisoned several times as a result of his pacifism. His views on religion, education, sex, politics and many other topics, made him one of the most read and revered writers of the age. This, his autobiography, is one of the most compelling and vivid ever written. This one-volume, compact paperback edition contains an introduction by the politician and scholar, Michael Foot, which explores the status of this classic nearly 30 years after the publication of the final volume.

UK Kirkus Review »
Russell's autobiography first appeared in three volumes some 30 years ago. Here all three appear in one tome, with several other notes by and about him, and a foreword by Michael Foot with whom he worked in the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. Russell was a hard-working philosopher and historian as well as a connection of half the greatest houses in England; a pillar of rational thought; and a wonderfully indiscreet writer. This work leaves out little from an exceptionally complicated personal history. (Kirkus UK)
