New Oxford Review
The Free Pressby Hilaire Belloc
Hilaire Belloc is the author of over 150 books on subjects ranging from history to travel, economics to social thought, and politics to religion. He was a master polemicist, with both the spoken and written word. He stands out among his contemporaries in English letters because of the breadth of his vision -- he wrote on almost every topic imaginable; and because of the depth of his vision -- Belloc wrote, with an unwavering commitment and a devastating logic, what his Faith and his Reason compelled him to write, regardless of the consequences. He took on the modern world with his pen, his wit, and God. His critique was persusasive then, and seems prophetic now. No sincere student of modernity can afford to ignore him.

Meet the Author
Hilaire Belloc began his academic career with a lecture tour of the United States in 1892. He became a member of the Fabian Society in the early 1900s and met George Bernard Shaw and H. G. Wells, who helped him obtain work with newspapers such as the Daily News and The Speaker. Eventually he became literary editor of the Morning Post. He was elected to the House of Commons in 1906. He also wrote several novels, such as Mr. Clutterbuck's Election and A Change in the Cabinet, along with historical works such as The French Revolution and the History of England. Belloc also published a series of historical biographies: Oliver Cromwell, James II, Richelieu, Wolsey, Napoleon, and Charles II.
