With a new preface by Michael Walzer
Jean-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.

'Still a monument of postwar writing on anti-Semitism....Michael Walzer's fine introduction will help current readers sift out what remains relevant form Sartre's work for considering the variants of antisemitism haunting the world today.' Elisabeth Young-BruehlAbout the Author:
JEAN-PAUL SARTREwas born in Paris in 1905. Educated at the Ecole Normale, he then taught philosophy in provincial lycées, 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.
