Most widely held works by Hilaire Belloc
Richelieu by Hilaire Belloc( Book )
75 editions published between 1929 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 2,743 libraries worldwide
A biography of Cardinal Richelieu of France—considered by many to be the founder of modern Europe—this book does not seek to make Richelieu a figure either of irrational worship or irrational hate. Belloc impartially examines Richelieu's life and career, delves into his Catholic and family roots, and pinpoints their relevance to the development of his character, his thought, and his political and religious policy

The party system by Hilaire Belloc( file )
24 editions published between 1911 and 2008 in English and held by 1,359 libraries worldwide
Pertinent to America, Britain, and other Western democracies, this book explains that what people believe happens in national assemblies and parliaments is radically different from the reality. Instead of being places where debate is intense, passionate, and aimed at the national interest, the fact is most members of these institutions act on behalf of powerful, unelected interests. They know, implicitly, who really runs the country—and their only real task is to decide if they want to try and rock the boat (thereby risking their salary, their reputation, their future), or stay silent for fear or favor. The book demonstrates beyond any doubt that the very nature of the system is hostile to democracy as laypeople understand it
Charles II the last rally by Hilaire Belloc( Computer File )
12 editions published between 1939 and 2003 in English and held by 1,352 libraries worldwide
In The Last Rally, Belloc narrates with clarity and vigor a central episode in the decline of the English Monarchy. Restored to the throne following the interlude of Cromwell's Commonwealth, Charles II devoted his life as King of England to maintaining the integrity of the throne against all the forces arrayed against it: the power of the great landowners who worked through the Parliament; the influence of the Lawyers' Guild; and the irresistible mercantile and financial strength of the city of London. The story that Belloc brings to life is thus one of survival: the story of a ship of state brought through peril and storm under a great captain. It is also the story of manhood and determination in the face of overwhelming odds; as such it is a story that Hilaire Belloc was eminently qualified to write
Kai Lung's golden hours by Ernest Bramah( file )
22 editions published between 1922 and 1957 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,325 libraries worldwide
British author Ernest Bramah develops his own unique versions of classic Chinese folktales – and creates a few entirely new ones – in the stories collected in Kai Lung's Golden Hours. Effortlessly embodying the clarity and purity of ancient Asian mythology, these short, sweet and often humorous stories will enchant readers young and old alike

The free press by Hilaire Belloc( file )
14 editions published between 1918 and 2010 in English and held by 1,142 libraries worldwide
Hilaire Belloc, a great English essayist of the 20th century, takes an uncompromising look at the forces working against the freedom of the press. Targeting financial and political influences, along with the influence of advertising, Belloc exposes the powers and motives responsible for the suppression of news and the manufacturing of opinion. Neither pie-in-the-sky idealism nor an irrational conspiracy theory, The Free Press is a rationally argued essay explaining the origins of those influences and factors that make the press less than what it should be honest: fair, and independent. This is a topical work written almost a century ago. Times have changed, but the situation has gone from bad to worse, and thus this work is even more relevant today. This book will be of interest to anyone, particularly the student of journalism and its history, who is curious about the rise of the major papers and media networks, and about the forces both overt and semi-covert working to shape what is reported and which opinions are sanctioned

An essay on the restoration of property by Hilaire Belloc( file )
10 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 1,017 libraries worldwide
This short work is a program for property distribution as an alternative to how it is planned by socialist states or naturally happens in capitalist societies. It is a landmark of European social thought, attempting to rectify the wrongs in both of the major economic theories by approaching the problem from an entirely new angle. The essay is thus an anticapitalist and antisocialist work of Christian and Catholic social thought in which basic truths about society and human nature are applied to socioeconomics. It is a manifesto and a program for the Distributist League, of which Belloc and G. K. Chesterton were the primary figures. It marks a key point in the history of economic thought, and it is a fundamental text illustrating the influence of religion and philosophy on social thought and their practical application to societal questions

The great heresies by Hilaire Belloc( Book )
37 editions published between 1938 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 943 libraries worldwide
Belloc cited the many beliefs and theological principles which Islam shares with Catholicism. Where Islam decisively diverges from Catholicism (and Christianity in general) is the ""denial of the Incarnation and all the sacramental life of the Church that followed from it."" In The Great Heresies Belloc grouped the Protestant Reformation together with Islam as one of the major heresies threatening the ""Church Universal.""
