Andre Malraux (1901-1976) was a novelist and politician. In the middle and late thirties Malraux became one of France's leading anti-Fascists and after a distinguished career in the Second World War he became involved in the Gaullist movement. After de Gaulle's withdrawal from politics in 1969, Malraux continued to be active both on the intellectual and the international front, until his death in 1976.

As explosive and immediate today as when it was originally published in 1933, Man's Fate (La Condition Humaine), an account of a crucial episode in the early days of the Chinese Revolution, foreshadows the contemporary world and brings to life the profound meaning of the revolutionary impulse for the individuals involved. As a study of conspiracy and conspirators, of men caught in the desperate clash of ideologies, betrayal, expediency, and free will, Andre Malraux's novel remains unequaled.
