Marc Crépon, The Thought of Death and the Memory of War is reviewed at NDPR. I didn’t know about this translation before, but it sounds important and interesting:

The first English translation of one of the foremost voices of contemporary moral and political philosophy

Marc Crépon pursues a path toward a cosmopolitics of mourning through readings of works by Freud, Heidegger, Sartre, Derrida, and Ricœur, and others. The movement among these writers marks a way through—and against—twentieth-century interpretation to argue that no war, genocide, or neglect of people is possible without suspending how one relates to the death of another human being.

There is an interview with him in French here that puts his work in relation to that of Bernard Stiegler.
