For more than sixty years, Partisan Review has been the most influential literary and cultural journal in America, home to some of this century's finest writers. A Partisan Century now collects the journal's greatest political essays from the 1930s to the present.

The list of writers collected here is a virtual who's who of American and European intellectual culture in the past half century. Leon Trotsky, James T. Farrell, Irving Howe, Hannah Arendt, Norman Mailer, C. Wright Mills, Arthur Schlesinger Jr., Nat Hentoff, Steven Marcus, Andrei Sakharov, and many more.

A Partisan Century gathers together some of the journal's most outstanding moments:from George Orwell's "London Letter," written when invasion by Nazi Germany seemed imminent; to Susan Sontag's 1964 essay, "Notes on 'Camp'," a harbinger to the age of postmodernism; to Steven Marcus's "Soft Totalitarianism," part of a rousing symposium on the effects of political correctness.

On the subjects ranging from the Cold War tothe neoconservatives, from the war in Vietnam to revolutionaries in Romania, the writings in A Partisan Century are a barometer of the shifts in global politics in the twentieth century.

Collects some of the greatest political essays published in Partisan Review since its founding in 1934.
