During the period covered by this volume, Bertrand Russell first retired from and then resumed his philosophical career. In 1927 he published two philosophy books, The Analysis of Matter and An Outline of Philosophy. His next book in academic philosophy, An Inquiry into Meaning and Truth, was not published until 1940.
Yet, Russell published a significant amount of essays and popular books between 1927 and 1946, mostly to finance the running of Beacon Hill School, and his growing family. Those years also saw his break-up with Dora Russell, his marriage to Patricia (Peter) Spence and a move of the family to the United States.
Volume 10 brings together Russell's writings on ethics, politics, religion and academic philsophy. It is an invaluable guide to the thought and development of one of the most famous philosophers of this century.

Review:

"This is a volume of immense importance and distinction. In combination with volume 11, it is a powerful indictment of those who believe Russell's philosophical work was barren between 1927 and 1940.."
-Bertrand Russell Society Newsletter, February 1998
"an extraordinarily ambitious undertaking... Up to now, 12 volumes have been produced, every one a model of diligent scholarship and handsome production.."
-Times Higher Education Supplement, December 13 1996
