Overview

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.
