Book Description

Sept. 1 2008 1932528121 978-1932528121

This compilation of important distributist authors delivers valuable insight into the manifest problems of society. Although most of the contributions were written more than 50 years ago, the questions raised by the writers have remained largely unanswered, and essays regarding topics like education, work, and freedom have lost little relevance in the ensuing decades. Featured authors include Eric Gill, Harold J. Massingham, and Dorothy Sayers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful; Terribly Important! Nov. 29 2008
By Michael Tozer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This excellent book stands a sequel to the excellent Distributist Perspectives: Volume One from the same publisher. And, if anything, the sequel is even better than the first book.

In our current economic environment, where both capitalism and socialism, those insidious blood brothers, are obviously failing, we desparately need the important teachings of Distributivsm, the Economics of Justice and Charity. And this excellent work, together with Belloc's "Servile State" and Chesterton's "Outline of Sanity" will provide any interested reader with sound foundation in this very important theory of economics.

The great Scholastic philsophers taught us that politics was a discipline within ethics. Following this, economics, also known by the Schoolmen as political economy, is also ultimately derived from ethics. And this is the essential teaching of the Distributist School.

In this collection of essays, that by S. Sagar on the general topic of Distributivsm is perhaps the best. But they are all really excellent. We strongly recommend this excellent book, and look forward also to its sequel. God bless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anthology of Lesser Known Distributists April 15 2009
By Kevin M. Derby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The second volume of "Distributist Perspectives" is another feather in the cap of IHS press. This volume contains a number of essays, all from the 1940s, that serve as an excellent introduction to distributism. Some readers may be disappointed that there are no "big names" here like Belloc and G.K.Chesterton though a piece by Dorothy Sayers is included in the book. For readers looking for an alternative to big business on one hand and big government on the other, this book is very valuable indeed. An excellent introduction by Allan Carlson and useful biographical sketches of the contributors serve as icing on the cake.
