Meet the Publishers - IHS Press

Coming just a week after celebrating the glorious Feast Day of Christ the King it seems appropriate to begin our new series of occasional posts - posts that will introduce friends and customers of Carmel Books to some of the less well-known publishers of good solid Catholic educational material - with IHS Press.

IHS Press was founded in 2001 and is the only publisher dedicated exclusively to the Social Doctrine of the Catholic Church and its Aristotelian-Thomistic philosophy. As such, IHS Press specializes in works of Catholic Social Thought that are faithful to the Traditional Teaching of the Roman Catholic Church.

IHS Press believes that the key to the restoration of Catholic Society is the recovery and the implementation of the wisdom that our forefathers in the Faith possessed, so fully, less than a century ago.

At a time when numerous ideologies were competing for supremacy, these men articulated with precision and vigour, and without any apology or compromise, the only genuine alternative to prevailing currents of thought which are value-free yet bureaucratic Progressivism on the one hand, and the rehashed Laissez-Faire free-for-all of Conservatism on the other. That alternative is the traditional Social Teaching of the Catholic Church.

Catholic Social Teaching offers the solutions to the political, economic, and social problems that plague modern society; problems that stem from the false principles of the Reformation, Renaissance, and Revolution, and which are exacerbated by the Industrialization and the secularization of society that has continued for several centuries.

Defending, explaining, and applying this Teaching was the business of the great Social Catholics of the last century. Unfortunately, much of their work is today both unknown and unavailable.

Thus, IHS Press was founded in 2001 as the only publisher dedicated exclusively to the traditional Social Teaching of the Church, helping Catholics of the third millennium pick up where those of last century left off.

IHS Press is committed to recovering, and helping others to rediscover, the valuable works of the Catholic economists, historians, and social critics. To that end, IHS Press is in the business of issuing critical editions of works on society, politics, and economics by writers, thinkers, and men of action such as Hilaire Belloc, Gilbert Chesterton, Arthur Penty, Fr. Vincent McNabb, Fr. Denis Fahey, Jean Ousset, Amintore Fanfani, George O’Brien, and many others, making the wisdom they contain available to the current generation.
