With more than five hundred illustrations, including photographs, diaries, letters, official documents, manuscripts, and pamphlets, no other book offers such a sweeping overview of the decisions that both prominent and little-known writers and editors made during this period. With an unpublished 1946 text by Jean-Paul Sartre.
