Product Details


“A complex mixture of history and analysis constitutes the great value of Nizan’s book … A hard, true testimony at a time when ‘the Young’ are forming groups and congratulating themselves, when the young man thinks he has rights because he is young.”—Jean-Paul Sartre

“It is a delicate, sometimes lyrical, evocation of the atmosphere and attitudes of the late Twenties. It catches the tone of youthful conversation and shows the interplay between intelligence and absurdity, feeling and frivolity, without any of the propagandist simplifications one might have expected from a Communist writer dealing with the privileged denizens of the Ecole Normale Supe?rieure … The Conspiracy is a genuine piece of literature.”—John Weightman, New York Review of Books
