More About This Title Action


This book considers different kinds of action; how to gauge the effectiveness of action; whether or not one or more actions are complementary or mutually destructive; and who should carry out the actions. French writer, thinker, and activist Jean Ousset examines the fundamental questions of effective social action, such as ideology, people, resources, and how to evaluate conflicting principles. Anyone interested in effecting social change or studying modern social movements will find this both a compelling and unique work.


Jean Ousset was the founder in 1946 of the Cite Catholique, an organization for Catholic social action. He was at the forefront of the modern European anti-Marxist movement. His other works include Marxism and Revolution, The Discovery of Beauty, and Reflections on the Notions of Fatherland, Nation, and State.
