It does not however as it was published in 1983 contain the latest revelations about Sartre's life and work. At the time it was written my sense is Sartre's reputation was more unimpeached than it is today. This guide stresses how much of a 'humanist' Sartre was , and how he always focused on the human situation, and how deeply his writing is involved in the social problems of mankind.
But Sartre's gung- ho Communist Anarchism is seen by many today as less than commendable. And his personal life shown to be far more contemptible and exploitative than was previously thought.
In any case this work which rightly see Sartre more as writer than philosopher provides an excellent introduction to his overall accomplishment.
