The rebel: an essay on man in revolt
By one of the most profoundly influential thinkers of our century, The Rebel is a classic essay on revolution. For Albert Camus, the urge to revolt is one of the "essential dimensions" of human nature, manifested in man's timeless Promethean struggle against the conditions of his existence, as well as the popular uprisings against established orders throughout history. And yet, with an eye toward the French Revolution and its regicides and deicides, he shows how inevitably the course of revolution leads to tyranny. As old regimes throughout the world collapse, The Rebel resonates as an ardent, eloquent, and supremely rational voice of conscience for our tumultuous times.
Translated from the French by Anthony Bower.

Review: The Rebel: An Essay on Man in RevoltUser Review - Cristina Petrisor - Goodreads
I feel that the concept of "rebellion" is nobly unfolded by blending the art of jointing a universal analysis with a personal reflective style. Far from being detached and solely argumentative, Camus manages to light a fire within any human who cannot ignore reality. Read full review
