Besides being a novelist and a playwright, Camus was an active journalist, writing hundreds of articles and editorials for newspapers, such as Combat and L'Express, in Algeria and in France during the Resistance and post liberation periods. In focusing on these extensive journalistic activities, Emmett Parker brings into clear relief the figure of Camus as artiste engage and demonstrates the evolution, the development, as well as the profound unit of Camus's thought. This book is written in the firm conviction that few men have understood or expressed better than Camus the social, economic, and political problems that confronted us at the time. Includes an Index. "Professor Parker has done an important service to Camus - one which may help clear the air of misconception about him." - Library Journal
