MALRAUX: Past Present Future

A coffee-table-sized tribute to author (his Anti-Memoirs were published in 1968), adventurer, aristocrat Andre Malraux, French Minister for Cultural Affairs since 1959, whose interviews with a somewhat fawning Suares cover the intellectual gamut from civilization, Evil, and saints, to action, the 1968 youth movement and the future of diplomacy when East might meet West. Along with the many, many intense-looking portraits of Malraux through the years, the 340 photographs include meetings with Eisenstein, Gorky, Gide, Valery, Nehru, Le Corbusier, Chagall, de Gaulle, Chou En-Lai. Imposing, elegant and elitist.
