Previously available only as part of a collection of Chesterton's works, and otherwise out of print for over 75 years, The Outline of Sanity is the first of many titles planned by IHS Press, a Catholic publishing house formed to bring the classics of 20th-century Catholic social thought back into circulation. These classics, to include The Restoration of Property and The Free Press, by Hilaire Belloc, propose an intelligent solution to current social ills an alternate and refreshing solution which transcends the sterile categories of left and right, liberal and conservative.
The social thought of the great English Catholic authors of last century is a buried treasure which is simply waiting to be discovered, said one of the IHS Press publishers. These books of which The Outline is probably the best example are brand new in spite of being 50 years old. They propose solutions to political, economic, and philosophical problems which we face today with a clarity and precision that is almost unheard of in current academic and cultural circles. There isn't a thoughtful or socially conscious person around who wouldn't benefit from a reading of The Outline and any of our other titles.
The Outline of Sanity is available at the initial low price of $12.95 direct from the publisher. To order a copy, simply call (757) 623-0309, e-mail email@example.com, or visit www.ihspress.com. Bookstores can order copies of Chesterton's classic direct from the publisher at the standard trade discount, and the book is also available through Baker and Taylor.
