AUTHOR

Cranston, Maurice W.

SUMMARY

In the first volume of his trilogy, noted political philosopher Maurice Cranston draws from original manuscript sources to trace Rousseau's life from his birth in provincial obscurity in Geneva, through his youthful wanderings, to his return to Geneva in 1754 as a celebrated writer and composer. "[An] admirable biography which is as meticulous, calm, reasonable, and judicious as its subject is passionate and tumultuous."Keith Michael Baker,Washington Post Book World "The definitive biography, as scholarly as it is entertaining."The Economist "Exceptionally fresh . . . . [Cranston] seems to know exactly what his readers need to know, and thoughtfully enriches the backgroundboth physical and intellectualof Rousseau's youthful peregrinations . . . . He makes the first part of Rousseau's life as absorbing as a picaresque novel. His fidelity to Rousseau's ideas and to his life as it was lived is a triumph of poise."Naomi Bliven,The New Yorker "The most outstanding achievement of Professor Cranston's own distinguished career."Robert Wokler,Times Literary Supplement Maurice Cranston (1920-1993), a distinguished scholar and recipient of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for his biography of John Locke, was professor of political science at the London School of Economics. His numerous books includeThe Romantic MovementandPhilosophers and Pamphleteers, and translations of Rousseau'sThe Social ContractandDiscourse on the Origins of Inequality.Cranston, Maurice W. is the author of 'Jean-Jacques The Early Life of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, 1712-1754' with ISBN 9780226118628 and ISBN 0226118622.
