Editorial Reviews

Scholarly and informative, this book reassesses the somewhat clichéd portrait of 'Camus le juste' by close investigation of his non-fictional texts, unpicking the tensions, ambiguities, and hesitations generated by the gradual slippage from the political to the ethical....It will interest both students and researchers, whatever their attitude to Mark Orme's closing claim that Camus remains a 'beacon of moral optimism.'
