About this title:

Synopsis: In Politics with Beauvoir Lori Jo Marso treats Simone de Beauvoir's feminist theory and practice as part of her political theory, arguing that freedom is Beauvoir's central concern and that this is best apprehended through Marso's notion of the encounter. Starting with Beauvoir's political encounters with several of her key contemporaries including Hannah Arendt, Robert Brasillach, Richard Wright, Frantz Fanon, and Violette Leduc, Marso also moves beyond historical context to stage encounters between Beauvoir and others such as Chantal Akerman, Lars von Trier, Rahel Varnhagen, Alison Bechdel, the Marquis de Sade, and Margarethe von Trotta. From intimate to historical, always affective though often fraught and divisive, Beauvoir's encounters, Marso shows, exemplify freedom as a shared, relational, collective practice. Politics with Beauvoir gives us a new Beauvoir and a new way of thinking about politics—as embodied and coalitional.

Review: "[Marso's] work on de Beauvoir demonstrates convincingly the inaccuracy of reading feminist theory as a species of thinking separated from politics." (Kathleen B. Jones Los Angeles Review of Books)

"A gripping and novel reading of Simone de Beauvoir’s politics of freedom and Beauvoirian feminism. . . . A welcome contribution to Beauvoir scholarship and feminist political theory." (Megan Burke H-France Review)

"Marso brilliantly demonstrates the way in which encounter is at the very center of everything Beauvoir wrote . . . . An important new contribution that extends studies on Beauvoir." (Mary Walsh Review of Politics)
