 About the Book 

This is an advanced introduction to the novels and plays of Jean-Paul Sartre, from his best-known novel, Nausea to his last great play, The Condemned of Altona. Sartres enormous success in the postwar period and subsequent eclipse by structuralism and poststructuralism are seen in the light of the history of the modern West but without assuming prior background by the reader. Understanding Jean-Paul Sartre makes for supplemental reading to the actual works and is suitable for both the general and academic reading public
