Remembering the ideals for which he risked his life, while never forgetting the evils against which he struggled, Stephane Hessel calls on all of us to take back the rights that have slowly slipped away since the Second World War ended. As sales of this masterful polemic approach a million in France, it is published here for the first time in English. Published by Charles Glass Books, an imprint of Quartet Books.

'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"' --Independent '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

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. From a German prisoner of war camp, he escaped to join General Charles de Gaulle's Free French in London. On his clandestine return to organise the Resistance in France, he was captured, tortured and sent to concentration camps. He escaped death to work after the war on drafting the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. He died in February 2013.
