Publisher's Summary

This controversial, impassioned call-to-arms for a return to the ideals that fueled the French Resistance has sold millions of copies worldwide since its publication in France in October 2010. Rejecting the dictatorship of world financial markets and defending the social values of modern democracy, 93-old Stéphane Hessel - Resistance leader, concentration camp survivor, and former UN speechwriter - reminds us that life and liberty must still be fought for and urges us to reclaim those essential rights we have permitted our governments to erode since the end of World War II.

A Powerful Call to Action

I am going to place this book on the syllabus of my university courses. I fundamentally believe that the author is correct, we should be outraged about the levels of violence that are perpetrated in the names of sovereignty and territorial integrity, at the ownership of the fruits of our common labour by a few and by the reasoning that promotes all of this. We have come so far from the ideals of the universality of human rights and on that journey, we have built a myriad arguments justifying ourdestructive behaviour. It's a time to return to fundamentals. Writing such as this is part of the catalytic action needed to resist historical amnesia and to break with patterns of destruction and oppression.

A great text to make you move

I had two options: to buy the book and sit down to read it or to hear it as I walked. The latter proved better with the contents, since the ideas inside make you want to move and do something to start changing this reality we live in.

The bio at the end is an amazing addition to understand who the author is.
