Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Hessel has retained the sense of indignation that drove him during the war. This book is a testament to his belief in the universality of rights…slim but powerful.” Nation
“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 (London)
“Like a song you hum or a film you recommend to friends, [Time for Outrage] crystallises the spirit of the time. To buy it is a militant act, a gesture towards community and participation in a collective emotion.” Libération (Paris)
