ACS Books Launches “The Hound of Distributism”

THE HOUND OF DISTRIBUTISM: A Solution for Our Social and Economic Crisis

The Hound of DistributismMINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota (March 27, 2012) – ACS Books announced today the release of its groundbreaking book on Distributism, the thought provoking idea that what is good for politics and business is not always good for society, but what is good for the family makes good politics and good business.

Distributism is a political economy championing the sustainability of decentralized, local economies with the aim of ensuring the widest ownership of the means of production. In a world obsessed with growth and globalization, Distributism is a solution to our present socio-economic malaise.

The Hound of Distributism is a collection of essays written by leading Distributist authors from around the world. Given our present social and economic crisis, this timely and rich volume challenges the sterility of our present by recovering the value of the socio-economic theory of Distributism.

The book is available for $13.95 at and is also available on Kindle at

About Distributism:

Inspired by the Catholic Church’s teaching to “induce as many as possible of the people to become owners,” famed writers G.K. Chesterton and Hilaire Belloc crafted an alternative against the dispossession caused by the monopolizing ends of socialism and capitalism, which come at the expense of justice, the common good, and our natural resources.
