Interest in the work of the early 19th century French political theorist Louis de Bonald has increased in recent years, due in part to renewed concerns about policies for promoting and sustaining the goods of marriage and the family. This collection of Bonald's essays, translated by Christopher Blum, will introduce readers to Bonald's thought with respect to the key areas of Catholic Social Teaching.

Louis de Bonald (1754-1840) was, in the words of Lamartine, "the most noble and pure face that the Old Regime was able to turn towards the New." Farmer and statesman, paterfamilias and publicist, Bonald is know for his spirited defense of the Christian social order from the rostrum of the French Chamber of Deputies under the Bourbon Restoration and in his many essays and books, especially his "Theory of Political and Religious Power" (1796) and "On Divorce" (1801).Review:
"Bonald's message is one that deserves our attention. ALthough it may seem dated and reactionary on the surface, Bonald's essays contain within them a fresh and vital perspective that is greatly needed today." --Andrew V. Abela, Catholic University of America
