"Published for the first time in 1973, Camp of the Saints is a novel that anticipates a situation that seems plausible today and foresees a threat that no longer seems unbelevable to anyone: it describes the peaceful invasion of France, and then of the West, by a third world burgeoned into multitudes. At all levels - global consciousness, governments, societies, and especially every person within himself - the question is asked belatedly: what's to be done?"--Author's introduction to the 1985 French edition.… (more)

Prophetic, but that's about the best I can say about this. Many like the style, but it reads like there was a conscious trade off of any realistic subtly for maximum shock value.

For that reason, it's a hard book for me to get into or take seriously, even if there isn't much else in terms of well-made fiction on the right. ( )

Epigraph
And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released from his prison, and will go forth and deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, and will gather them together for the battle; the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up over the breadth of the earth and encompassed the camp of the saints, and the beloved city.

APOCALYPSE 20

My spirit turns more and more toward the West, toward the old heritage. There are, perhaps, some treasures to retrieve among its ruins . . . I don't know.

LAWRENCE DURRELL

As seen from the outside, the massive upheaval in Western society is approaching the limit beyond which it will become "meta-stable" and must collapse
