Political Writings Hardback
Edited by Margaret A. Simons, Marybeth Timmermann
Part of the Beauvoir Series series
Political Writings offers an abundance of newly translated essays by Simone de Beauvoir that demonstrate a heretofore unknown side of her political philosophy.
The volume traces nearly three decades of Beauvoir's leftist political engagement, from expos\u00e9s of conditions in fascist Spain and Portugal in 1945 and hard-hitting attacks on right-wing French intellectuals in the 1950s, to the 1962 defense of an Algerian freedom fighter Djamila Boupacha and a 1975 article arguing for what is now called the "two-state solution" in Israel.
In addition, this collection includes provocative essays in which Beauvoir analyzes American politics in ways of particular interest to scholars today.
