A Partisan Century: Political Writings from Partisan Review
by Edith Kurzweil (Editor)
Our Price: $20.50

Paperback (October 1996)
Columbia Univ Pr; ISBN: 023110331X

Drawn from more than sixty years of commentary in America's most influential literary and cultural journal, A Partisan Century collects some of the greatest political essays published in Partisan Review since its founding in 1934.

A virtual "who's who" of American and European intellectual culture in the past half century, the brilliantly eclectic roster of contributions includes George Orwell's "London Letters," written when invasion by Nazi Germany seemed imminent, Susan Sontag's 1964 essay "Notes on Camp," and Steven Marcus's "Soft Totalitarianism," on the effects of political correctness.

Consistently challenging the tide of trendy political opinion, the writings in A Partisan Century are a barometer of the shifting currents of culture and politics in this century.
