The distinguished contributors represent a variety of disciplines and methodologies. They share, however, an intense concern with the relationship between the act of writing and the political and public issues of this extraordinary period. The essays suggest that significant art, even when apparently private, was deeply engaged with public issues, while political writing was intimately involved with questions of style and inward conscience.
