Editorial Reviews

Review

'The book urges the French, and everyone else, to recapture the wartime spirit of resistance to the Nazis by rejecting the "insolent, selfish" power of money and markets and by defending the social "values of modern democracy."
The Independent

"This slim but powerful volume answered the public's need for a voice to articulate popular resentment of ruling-class ruthlessness, police brutality, stark income disparities, banking and political corruption, and victimization of the poor and immigrants."
The Nation

"INDIGNEZ-VOUS! is creating the sort of stir in France Emile Zola did in 1898, when he published J'Accuse!"
The National Post

"Like a song you hum or a film you recommend to friends, INDIGNEZ-VOUS! crystallises the spirit of the time. To buy it is a militant act, a gesture towards community and participation in a collective emotion."
Liberation

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.

"Time for Outrage" (Quartet Books in the UK) is a translation of a book in French, "Indignez-vous!" (Indigene Editions in France) one of two recent books from France that have been stirring things up. I (Clayton Hallmark) have written extensively on these on the Internet ( TimeforOutrage dot net ).

"Indignez-vous!", basically just 12 pages of text (!)plus notes,shook up France at year end with record sales, and possibly its former colony Tunisia, in which riots took down the government just before the Egypt riots.

I'll provide a few excerpts later so you get the gist of Time for Outrage, which is sure to be an important book in English.

Author Stephane Hessel is, to France, a Justin Bieber-scale personality phenomenon at the other end of the age scale. He is 94 and wants us to get mad and take to the streets - peacefully. Peacefully because he thinks there is hope for reform. More is at timeforoutrage dot net. Hessel has been stirring things up for a long time: He helped to write the UN Declaration of Universal Human Rights (the word "Universal" is key, meaning the rights are inherent and not the state's to grant or deny), which was adopted in 1948 and based on an earlier program of the Free French resistance Hessel was part of. He thinks this declaration helped to free colonies such as Tunisia and Algeria in earlier revolts.

One way to understand the importance of this book is to compare it to the other current French literary phenom, "The Coming Insurrection" by the Invisible Committee thecominginsurrection dot net , which Glenn Beck of has been concentrating on in his Fox News broadcasts in early 2011. That book was translated to English recently and is available at Amazon.

Hessel reminds us that any democracy is only as good as its democrats (note the small "d"). In concise language, he points out how we are being maneuvered into the ruthless arms of tyranny - again. This time, the tyranny of giant banks, multi-national corporations and their wholly owned media outlets. Kudos for speaking out against the terrible repression that Palestinians are facing every day at the hands of their Israeli tormentors. As long as anti-semitism is being used as a stick to beat up on people, every time someone criticizes Israel's policies, there won't be any peace between them.

The book is written by a man who fought in WW II as a French Resistance. He was a part of that great history. Part of the generation which fought against Fascism. Not Facism in the metaphoric sense, but he fought it with his physical self, his academic self and his spiritual self. He was part of the generation which brought the seeds of peace and equality we enjoy today.

In this book, he talks about what they fought for. He talks about the perversion of the dreams of those around him ... those who fell and those who survived. His words are at once inspiring, sobering and sad. If you want to hear the last pleas for help from a hero, this is the book you need to read.

I love this book: Time to listen to our elders IMO. The author fought with the French Resistance during WW II, and was indeed fortunate to escape from the Nazis who were about to hang him for his Resistance efforts and because he is a Jew. The Nazis had tortured him by various means including water boarding.

Chapter titles: Time for Outrage. Indignation Fuels Resistance. Two Visions of History. The Worst Attitude is Indifference. Palestine - My Own Outrage. Non Violence -- The Path We must Learn to Follow. For a Peaceful Insurrection. Publisher's Notes. About the Author.

The author "speaks" in a clear and persuasive voice, and supports his gentle arguments with examples of his own experiences in life. I highly recommend this book.

My hardcover copy is a First North American Edition and is translated into English by Marion Duvert. The binding is excellent: Med. red, smooth book cover almost feels like leather with its high gloss-lightly textured finish and is small enough to fit into a breast pocket.

8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By J. Hargrove VINE VOICE on November 13, 2011
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book because of the buzz around the net. It's title pretty much says it all. Why aren't we outraged at what is happening in the world now?
The author, a veteran of the French Resistance in World War II describes the ideals of the Resistance, and how they were put into practice after the end of the war. Now, it seems as if all those ideals have been corrupted by the powers that be in our modern world. It is, as he says, time for outrage. The catch is that the outrage has to be focused on repairing the damage down in recent years. He is very vague about how to go about it.

Nevertheless, the book has served as a clarion call for many around the world today. It is credited with inspiring the Arab Spring as well as the Occupy movement in the USA. That was enough to get me to read it and suggest you read it as well.

A must read! and then act! book. The paperback has a valuable introduction, lacking in the hard back. Why are thoughtful, educated people so apathetic? Why am I at my computer instead of "Occupying Portland"? Indignez vous indeed!
