Praise For Unfinished Projects: Decolonization and the Philosophy of Jean-Paul Sartre…
“In this innovative and exciting book, Paige Arthur recasts the story of twentieth-century intellectual life by retrieving its global contexts and shattering convenient myths... Sartre’s anticolonialism proves in Arthur’s sophisticated rendition far richer and more complex than snide dismissals of his ‘totalitarian’ impulses have allowed.”—Samuel Moyn, Columbia University
“Arthur’s insightful and careful exposition of Sartre’s anti-colonial trajectory from 1945 constitutes a powerful corrective to revisionist interpretation of his ‘Third Worldism.’”—Times Literary Supplement
“In this fine book Paige Arthur systematically examines from a fresh perspective a second political engagement of Sartre’s: as a critic of colonialism and neo-colonialism and as a supporter of Third World liberation struggles.”—Joseph G. Peschek, New Political Science
