"IHS Press Group" fundraising has started, as of the Feast of Christ the King, 2011. Contribute now (below) or see our fundraising page.
Watch for an Important Announcement.  (Oct. 26, 2011) IHS Press -- launched in September of 2001 to bring back into print the classics of last century on the Social Doctrine of the Catholic Church and to spearhead a renewal of interest in the true Catholic approach to politics, economics, and social affairs -- is beginning an initiative, starting on October 30, 2011 (the Feast of Christ the King), to: transform its publishing program; spearhead a Catholic Land Movement; inaugurate a journal for Political and Social Catholicism; and develop an Institute for Catholic Social Doctrine and Policy Research -- all under the auspices of the new "IHS Press Group." Fundraising will coincide with a new web development project launching on All Saints Day (Nov. 1, 2011), and will run at least through the Feast of King St. Louis IX (August 25, 2012); results of these efforts will be announced at a Washington, D.C.-area conference tentatively planned for that weekend.

Support the IHS Press Group. IHS Press is a not-for-profit corporation that depends in part upon help from benefactors to continue its mission of promoting and promulgating traditional Catholic Social Doctrine to the farthest reaches of the English-speaking world. All donations received from the Feast of Christ the King (Oct. 30, 2011) through the Feast of St. Isidore the Farmer (Apr. 4, 2012) will be earmarked, unless otherwise indicated, for the transformational effort currently underway to grow IHS into the "IHS Press Group."

About our currently advertised specials and new releases. Order Distributist Perspectives II now!

Many of our loyal customers (thank you) have called recently to inquire after our newly advertised titles, wondering why they are nowhere to be found at our antiquated website. As we are, as usual, facing a number of (happily not very serious) production delays with both our two new releases and our revision to our website, updating this old site has fallen to number 74 on our 1200-item "to do" list. A word of explanation and a "status report" is in order.
     To take the second point first:
     Sadly, aside from our recent new releases, numerous of other relatively new titles are not featured on this legacy website. The detailed reasons behind this are as unpersuasive as they are inexcusable. That said, our new site, which you can get an "under-construction" preview of here and here, will, God willing, and barring the never unlikely scheduling disaster, be ready to roll sometime this fall (Sep. 2008).
UPDATE (Aug. 1, 2010): As should be now painfully apparent, a scheduling disaster has, of course, befallen us. That disaster prompted a re-tooling of the old new website, and has led to the migration of everything to different open-source content, which will, we hope, prove more viable in the longterm. In the short term it has, of course, but the website upgrade back to just shy of the end of the world as we know it. Of course with God all things are possible, so it is likely that the web revamp will be done sometime before that. A hint of what is to come - very rough - is here. As promised, the new, new site will still include a number of nice features, including the option to get electronic versions of most of our titles, for viewing on an on-screen reader such as Adobe Acrobat or in the new ePub format readable on a number of new electronic platforms. This is for you Distributists trying to kick the habit of driving and learning to ride the train or bus to work, and who need something more interesting to look at than work e-mail on your "palm pilot" or "PDA" while you ride.
     That said, from this inadequate little box, you can order copies of our most recently advertised books, and, once again, please accept our apologies that these are not featured as they should be, with a full suite of images and information. It's coming SOON, we promise!

  • IHS Launches its third imprint:
    Light in the Darkness Publications.

         Established in the middle of 2005, LID Pubs is chartered with producing works dealing with current events and other topics of immediate newsworthiness.
         Kicking-off this new imprint is a two-volume anthology on the Iraq war, looking at the conflict in light of the perennial tradition of the Church's just-war doctrine, along with other legal, political, and historical considerations.
         The aim of this set is three-fold: (1) to recover and re-assert the true just-war doctrine in the face of its corruption by so-called "Catholic neoconservatives" who claim a right to attack a sovereign nation that has not committed an act of aggression; (2) to expose the sadly profound immorality of our nation's treatment of Iraq in the run-up to the March 2003 invasion and during the decade preceding; and (3) to illustrate the bankruptcy of the modern political categories of "left" and "right," "Democrat" and "Republican," "Liberal" and "Conservative," by bringing together an eclectic group of pundits, journalists, historians, and other scholars in a collection that transcends the sterile boundaries of current politics and tackles issues in view of the only criteria that matter: truth or falsehood, accuracy or error, honesty or deceit. It is, of course, according to these criteria that the Church's moral and political wisdom has so much to offer, and no modern case better illustrates this fact than the war in Iraq and its implications under just-war doctrine.

    Guild theorist rediscovered.
    IHS Press prints anthology of Penty's works. The Gauntlet, the title of IHS Press's first anthology of the works of Arthur J. Penty, is now available. Dealing with the importance of spiritual truth in forming an accurate understanding of economic life, and covering such subordinate topics as justice in pricing, the Guild System, the problem of Industrialism, and much more, this first-ever collection of Penty's writings will be sure to challenge and even revolutionize the socio-economic vision of all open-minded readers. more
