The Camp of the Saints

 (The Camp of the Saints)
Originally published in France in 1973 and in English translation in 1975 by the distinguished American publisher Charles Scribner Sons, The Camp of the Saints has been described as the 1984 of the late twentieth century. The Social Contract Press is honored to be able to offer a reprint of this gripping novel, which envisions the overrunning of European civilization by burgeoning Third World populations. This new (6th) edition includes an interview with the author, Jean Raspail s comments to the French newspaper Le Figaro near the twenty-fifth anniversary of its publication, a collection of reviews of the book at the time it was first released in the United States, and two additional supplements: Lee Mare s introduction and his translation of Raspail s foreword to the 2011 French edition, titled Big Other.

Jean de Brébeuf: Saint among the Hurons

 (Jean de Brébeuf: Saint among the)
The Hurons stared at the giant young Norman, as tall and broad as they, a Jesuit priest robed in black and with a full black beard on his gentle face. He was to live among them for nineteen years, patiently and with enormous difficulty learning their ways and language, and with infinite pains leading a small band of them into the Christian faith and away from the blood lusts of their violent life.He would eat their raw bear and moose meat, paddle many months and many miles in their canoes, build his rough chapel surrounded by their long houses, and win their respect and love. At length, joined by other "Blackrobes", Father Jean de Brébeuf erected a bit of Old France, with church and stockade, in the Canadian wilderness.Never disturbed by fears for his own safety, Father de Brébeuf saw his village chapels burned, his converts shunned and tortured, and his fellow priests murdered by the Iroquois, the enemy of the Hurons. Finally, his own death came at their hands after incredible tortures.This swift-paced book, more than a biography of a great saint whose story has never before been completely told in English, is a vital chapter in the tragic history of New France in North America three centuries ago, a story of the failure of colonization partially redeemed by the blood of the m...

Saint Genet: Actor and Martyr

 (Saint Genet: Actor and Martyr)
Saint Genet is Jean-Paul Sartre’s classic biography of Jean Genet—thief, convict, and great artist—a character of almost legendary proportions whose influence grows stronger with time. Bringing together two of the century’s greatest minds and artists, Saint Genet is at once a compelling psychological portrait, masterpiece of literary criticism, and one of Sartre’s most personal and inspired philosophical creations.

Saint Jean-Baptiste de La Salle (French Edition)

 (Saint Jean-Baptiste de La Salle (French)
En même temps que la vie de Saint Jean-Baptiste de la Salle, cet ouvrage nous fait découvrir ce qu’était l’école primaire au 17e siècle. Saint Jean-Baptiste de La Salle (Reims, 30 avril 1651 - Manoir de Saint-Yon, faubourg de Rouen, 7 avril 1719) est un ecclésiastique français et un innovateur dans le domaine de la pédagogie, qui a consacré sa vie à éduquer les enfants pauvres. Fondateur de l’Institut des Frères des Écoles chrétiennes, Saint Jean-Baptiste de la Salle a posé les fondements de ce qui devait devenir l’École normale, en même temps que ses écoles gratuites, à une époque où l’instruction publique n’était pas une priorité de l’État. Son père le destine à une carrière juridique, mais Jean se sent la vocation religieuse. Tonsuré à 11 ans, il se destine à la prêtrise. Formé à la Sorbonne et au séminaire Saint-Sulpice, dont la spiritualité le marque profondément, il devient dès le 7 janvier 1667 chanoine à Reims, étudie la théologie à Paris à partir de 1670 et est ordonné prêtre le 9 avril 1678. Enfin, en 1680, il est reçu docteur en théologie. Il aurait pu se contenter d’une vie de piété facile et agréable. Vous verrez qu’il a choisi un autre chemin, semé de bien des embûches... L'Église s'oppose à la c...

Le Camp des saints (French Edition)

 (Le Camp des saints (French)
" Dans la nuit, au midi de notre pays, cent navires se sont échoués, chargés d'un million d'immigrants. Ils viennent chercher l'espérance. Ils inspirent la pitié. Ils sont faibles... Ils ont la puissance du nombre. Ils sont l'Autre, c'est-à-dire multitude, l'avant-garde de la multitude. À tous les niveaux de la conscience universelle, on se pose alors la question : que faire ? Il est trop tard. Paru pour la première fois en 1973, Le Camp des Saints, qui est un roman, relève en 2011 de la réalité. Nous sommes, tous, les acteurs du Camp des Saints. C'est notre destin que ce livre raconte, notre inconscience et notre acquiescement à ce qui va nous dissoudre. C'est pourquoi, en guise de préface à cette nouvelle édition, dans un texte intitulé Big Other, j'ai voulu, une dernière fois, mettre un certain nombre de points sur les i. " J.R.
