André Malraux - An Age of Oppression (Le Temps du mepris)

Aimed to coincide with the centenary of Malraux's birth, André Malraux: An Age of Oppression is the first translation/annotated edition of Le Temps de mépris in a comprehensive format. The story (with the emphasis upon the psychological trauma suffered by a German political prisoner of the Nazis in the early 1930s) marks a significant moment in Malraux's literary oeuvre, and a prophetic insight into the historical implications of the situation prevailing in pre-World War II Nazi Germany.
