TIME FOR OUTRAGE: Indignez-vous! is a controversial, impassioned call-to-arms for a return to the ideals that fueled the French Resistance. It has sold nearly 2 million copies in France and millions more worldwide since its publication in France in October 2010, and is just coming out in English translation in September 2011. Rejecting the dictatorship of world financial markets and defending the social values of modern democracy, 93-old Stéphane Hessel -- Resistance leader, concentration camp survivor, and former UN speechwriter -- reminds us that life and liberty must still be fought for, and urges us to reclaim those essential rights we have permitted our governments to erode since the end of World War II.
Stéphane Hessel was interviewed on NPR's Morning Edition on September 22, 2011. To listen to his interview, click here.
