The book contains the works by an eminent politician, Nobel Peace Prize laureate Leon Bourgeois (1851–1925) and a well-known sociologist Celestin Bougle (1870-1940) on the social and political doctrine of solidarism. The basic problem and aim for Bourgeois and Bougle was the reinforcement of solidarity in French society at the turn of 19 and 20 centuries in order to compensate for its social inequaliry. According to them solidarism is mainly mutual responsibility, mutual assistance and just distribution of goods; it must be formalized in legislation and introduced by social education. In these works the conceptual similarities and differences between solidarism, liberalism and socialism are discussed.
