Dreyfus was subsequently court-martialed and imprisoned on Devil's Island, and the efforts of his family to have him released provoked an anti-Semitic controversy that split the French intellectual worlds down the centre. Most famous among the participants was France's greatest living novelist, Emile Zola. This book provides, in English translation, the full extent of Zola's writings on the Dreyfus affair. It represents, in its polemical entirety, a defence of human rights and a denunciation of fanaticism and prejudice.Hide synopsis
