Description - Anti-Semite and Jew by Jean-Paul Sartre

With a new preface by Michael WalzerJean-Paul Sartre's book is a brilliant portrait of both anti-Semite and Jew, written by a non-Jew and from a non-Jewish point of view. Nothing of the anti-Semite either in his subtle form as a snob, or in his crude form as a gangster, escapes Sartre's sharp eye, and the whole problem of the Jew's relationship to the Gentile is examined in a concrete and living way, rather than in terms of sociological abstractions.

Author Biography - Jean-Paul Sartre

JEAN-PAUL SARTREwas born in Paris in 1905. Educated at the Ecole Normale, he then taught philosophy in provincial lycees, and in 1938 published his first novel, Nausea. During the war he completed the major work that eventually established his reputation as an existential philosopher--Being and Nothingness (1943). After the Liberation, he founded the socialist journal Les Temps Modernes. He was a prolific playwright, producing, among other works No Exit, The Devil and the Good Lord, and The Condemned of Altona. In 1960, he published his second basic philosophical work, Critique of Dialectical Reason. In 1964, his account of his childhood, Words, received worldwide acclaim. That same year he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, which he refused. In 1971-1972, the first three volumes of his ambitious study of Flaubert's life and work appeared. He died in 1980.
