By one of the most profoundly influential thinkers of our century The Rebel is a classic essay on revolution For Albert Camus the urge to revolt is one of the essential dimensions of human nature manifested in man s timeless Promethean struggle against the conditions of his existence as well as the popular uprisings against established orders throughout history And yet with an eye toward the French Revolution and its regicides and deicides he shows how inevitably the course of revolution leads to tyranny As old regimes throughout the world collapse The Rebel resonates as an ardent eloquent and supremely rational voice of conscience for our tumultuous times Translated from the French by Anthony Bower
