A Political Companion to Saul Bellow examines the author's novels, essays, short stories, and letters in order to illuminate his evolution from liberal to neoconservative. It investigates Bellow's exploration of the United States as a democratic system, the religious and ideological influences on his work, and his views on race relations, religious identity, and multiculturalism in the academy. Featuring a fascinating conclusion that draws from interviews with Bellow's sons, this accessible companion is an excellent resource for understanding the political thought of one of America's most acclaimed writers.

"This volume pulls together an impressive array of authors and examinations of Bellow, presenting a diverse and substantive exploration of Bellow's work, his life, and the evolution of his political thought." -- Lilly J. Goren, Carroll University
"The volume will most assuredly open a broader conversation in the academy and among the public about Bellow's political thought. This new information contributes not just to the study of the life and work of Saul Bellow, but to scholarship in American literature, American Jewish literature, Jewish studies, and other fields." -- Holli Levitsky, Loyola Marymount University, and 2001--2002 Fulbright Distinguished Chair in American Literature in Poland
