Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

About the Author

Stephane Hessel was born in Germany in 1917, emigrated with his Jewish writer father and mother to France in 1924, and fought in the French Army in 1940. After being captured by German forces, he escaped from a prisoner of war camp and joined General Charles de Gaulle's Free French in London. On his clandestine return to organise the Resistance in France, he was caught, arrested, tortured and sent to concentration camps. He escaped death to work after the war on drafting the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, whose ideals he defends passionately to this day.

chudyca, January 19, 2012 (view all comments by chudyca)
An essential book for our times, calling on us all (young and old alike) to stand for our rights in the face of those who would deprive us of those rights. The author, Stephane Hessel, urges us as a matter of conscience, to act peacefully and nonviolently, both individually and in community, to insist on social justice in our lives. Hessel's life provides the example, and his words articulate a prescription for hope in dark times.
