Hilaire Belloc was an Anglo-French writer and historian. He was one of the most prolific writers in England during the early twentieth century. He was known as a writer, orator, poet, sailor, satirist, man of letters, soldier and political activist. His Catholic faith had a strong impact on his works. He was President of the Oxford Union and later MP for Salford from 1906 to 1910. He was a noted disputant, with a number of long-running feuds, but also widely regarded as a humane and sympathetic man. Belloc became a naturalised British subject in 1902, while retaining his French citizenship. Belloc wrote on myriad subjects, from warfare to poetry to the many current topics of his day. He has been called one of the Big Four of Edwardian Letters, along with H.G.Wells, George Bernard Shaw, and G. K. Chesterton, all of whom debated with each other into the 1930s.
Disillusioned with late capitalism? This book is for you. Horrified by socialism and communism? This book is for you. Thinking that the two systems are actually more closely related than they are enemies? This book is for you! This book is basically the beginning of the movement that has become known as the Just Third Way, championed by the Center for Economic and Social Justice. It's the TradCat redpill I first swallowed before diving headlong into Catholic Political Economy.
Note: I haven't purchased this book from the fine people at Tumblar House, because I actually listened to an audio copy while driving to and from work for a week. That being said, I'll be picking up a copy soon enough.
What I have read so far is great!
