Product Description

Review

France's leading Marxist public intellectual. --Tariq Ali

Daniel's death is like a wound, not a sadness. A loss which leaves us heavier. However, this weight is the opposite of a burden; it is a message composed, not with words, but with decisions and acts and injuries. --John Berger

Daniel Bensaïd was my 'distant companion' ... With his disappearance, the intellectual, activist, political, and what we might call, even though the adjective is today obscure in meaning, 'revolutionary' world has changed. --Alain Badiou

About the Author

DANIEL BENSAïD (1946 - 2010) was a founder member of the Ligue Communiste and a leader for many years of the Fourth International. His many books include Walter Benjamin, sentinelle messianique; Jeanne de guerre lasse; Eloge de la politique profane; and Marx for Our Times.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It might have been titled 'A Wasted Life'. A talented, intelligent man spent his whole adult life leading a miniscule, uninfluential Trotskyist group in France and being a functionary of one of the many 'bonsai 4th Internationals. At the same time his peers and ex friends rose to leading roles in the French state or in major political parties.
