The Life of Bertrand Russell
The eloquent and intimate biography of one of the most significant figures of the last century.
Bertrand Russell was a British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, writer, social critic, political activist and won the Nobel Prize for literature. Born into the high world of the Whig aristocracy, among people for whom Waterloo was still almost a personal memory, Russell lived to inspire the campaign against nuclear warfare. He was imprisoned in 1918 for his Pacifism.
Ronald Clark, with access to a mass of material, provides a fascinating and graphic portrait of the man. There is virtually no aspect of Russell's long life to which something new - and often unexpected - is not added by this remarkable and incisive book.
