Sustainable Society:  A society that balances the environment, other life forms, and human interactions over an indefinite time period.







Author:  Jean Raspail

French author best known for his book "Camp of the Saints" published originally in 1973 in Paris by Robert Laffont Editions, revised in 1985, and republished in 1995 by The Social Contract Press in the United States.

The book, although universal in application is focused on France and Europe, is a fictional account of the potential effects on culture, race, and nationhood from large numbers of refugees or immigration. On a deeper level, the book is also an essay on culture and overpopulation, poverty and carrying capacity.

  • “Dismissed by some as merely fantasy, Raspail’s nightmare vision of a Third World invasion of the Western world has become today’s reality....” — Jeffery Hart, Professor of English, Dartmouth College, and Senior Editor, National Review.
  • “The liberal reviewers killed it with ridicule or with silence. The plot was intolerable to them...our children and grandchildren may soon discover that Jean Raspail wrote not fiction, but fact .... One of the most chilling books of this generation ...” — James J. Kilpatrick, Columnist.
  • “A brilliant landscape of apocalypse, without a doubt the strongest book of the season.” — Edmund Fuller, Wall Street Journal.
  • “...[A] haunting book ...” — William F. Buckley, Jr.
