This long-awaited second volume of Russell's best letters reveals the inner workings of a philosophical genius and an impassioned campaigner for peace and social reform. The letters, only three of which have been published before, cover most of Russell's adult life, a period in which he wrote over thirty books, including his famous History of Western Philosophy. Richly illustrated with photographs from Russell's life, the collection includes letters to Ho Chi Minh, Tito, Jawaharlal Nehru and Albert Einstein.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'These are not mere selection of letters; they are letters expertly chosen and brillantly annotated, with a running commentary situating each one in the complex circumstances of Russell's life...nothing else written about Russell's life, including recent biographies, comes near it in value...a remarkable document about a remarkable life.' - Literary Review, April 2001

'Pray silence for the sage of Plas Penrhyn - possibly the most celebrated English intellectual of the 20th century. At times one feels that if Russell had not existed, Nancy Mitford or Evelyn Waugh would have had to invent him.' - The Times

With the publication of the second volume of The Selected Letters of Bertrand Russell, Nicholas Griffin has completed a work of impressive scholarship. - Russell: The Journal of Bertrand Russell Studies
