The Political Illusion
Translated by Konrad Kellen
Foreword by David W. Gill
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
Jacques Ellul (1912-1994), a French sociologist and lay theologian, waas Professor Emeritus of Law and of the History and Sociology of Institutions at the University of Bordeaux. He wrote more than forty books, including The Technological Society, The Humiliation of the Word, and Technological Bluff.
"The Political Illusion completed Ellul's trinity of social criticism that includes The Technological Society and Propaganda. On this 50th anniversary of the book's publication, his insight still holds strong that politics is no longer possible as the free pursuit of external goals to support the general good."
--David Lovekin, Philosophy, Hastings College
