Best known for his 1947 memoir L'Espece humaine, Robert Antelme (1917-1990) is a central figure in the history of the European response to the Nazi concentration camps. In this first study in any language to be devoted to Antelme's work, Martin Crowley reveals the author's vital yet insufficiently recognized influence on recent thought in France and elsewhere about such questions as the nature of community and the indivisibility of humanity. He explores the conclusions Antelme drew from his deportation and his involvement with the post-war French left, and provides the first detailed textual criticism of L'Espece humaine. Examining the responses to the author's writing by such figures as Blanchot, Perec, Agamben, Nancy and Derrida, Crowley demonstrates Antelme's key contribution to the development of modern European thought.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A sensitive and timely account... Crowley s challenging and detailed study shows vitally that if Antelme is ultimately and necessarily writing within the limits of his own period, none the less he makes an urgent, ethical, and highly politicized challenge to the reader which may never be realized, yet which remains all the more pressing at the beginning of the twenty-first century.--Kathryn Robson "Modern Language Review, 100.1, January 2005, 220-21 ""
Martin Crowley s concern, in this thought-provoking study of the text and the readings to which it has given rise, is to elucidate the dynamics of Antelme s thought firstly by focusing specifically on Antelme, rather than on Antelme as approached from Marguerite Duras, and secondly by situating Antelme s writings historically, philosophically and, to a certain extent, politically.--Margaret Atack "French Studies, 58.4, 2004, 574 ""
