About the Author
Bernard-Henri Lévy is a philosopher, filmmaker, activist, and author of more than thirty books, including The Virus in the Age of Madness. He is widely regarded as one of the West's most important public intellectuals.
"Call[s] on people not just to see the world, but to be moved and interested by what they find there, and to do something about it."--Anne Applebaum, The Atlantic

"The renowned French philosopher and activist delivers an intellectual biography-cum-manifesto that demands that we face and document the world's horrors. . . . [Lévy] advocates for politically engaged journalism that does not pretend to objectivity. The writer, he insists, must make a stand in the face of genocide, fundamentalist intolerance, and other assaults on human rights and democracy."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Ever the interventionist, Lévy implores us to break free from the chains of apathy."--James Kirchick, Air Mail

"This is a book born out of an extraordinary life, much of it spent plunging into the world's most troubled and crucial places, a life committed to an internationalism that is not owned by the powerful, and to visions of France, Europe and liberty that can't be understood by bureaucrats. A passionate, engaged book that combines philosophy, war reportage, and autobiography to explore the creation of a brilliant and brave mind."--Salman Rushdie
