Biografie şi Bibliografie

 -
Jean Raspail (born 5 July 1925 at Chemillé-sur-Dême, Indre-et-Loire) is a French author, traveler and explorer.

In 1950–52, he led the Tierra del Fuego–Alaska car trek and in 1954, the French research expedition to the land of the Incas. In 1981, his novel, Moi, Antoine de Tounens, roi de Patagonie ('Me, Antoine of Tounens, King of Patagonia'), won the Grand Prix du Roman (award for a novel) of the Académie française.

He encountered a huge controversy with his book The Camp of the Saints (1973). In it he predicted the overwhelming of Western civilization in a 'tidal wave' of Third World immigration. His critics accuse him of right-wing extremism on the basis of the views expressed in the book. The book is popular among immigration reductionists, and has been reprinted by John Tanton's The Social Contract Press.

He lives in Neuilly-sur-Seine, near Paris.
