Camus' major essay on the nature and origins of rebellion demonstrates how revolution, by its very nature, inevitably leads to a new tyranny. For Camus, the urge to rebel is manifested in man's timeless Promethean struggle against the conditions of his existence, as well as the popular uprisings against established orders throughout history. Camus also shows how rebellion can lead to tyranny. Translated from the French by Anthony Bower.
