Jacques Ellul was born in Bordeaux in 1912.  A Graduate in Jurisprudence in 1936, he thereafter taught in French universities until he was discharged by the Vichy regime.  He then joined and fought in the Resistance.  After France's liberation, while attached to the city government of Bordeaux, he was named Professor at the law school there.  In 1947, he was appointed to a chair in law and social history at the Institut d'Etudes Politiques.  His increasing reputation as a significant social and political philosopher was first established in the United States by the American publication of The Technological Society (1964), Propaganda (1965), and The Political Illusion (1967).
