      The book is called: "Humanisme et racisme humain".  It was published in '73 or
      '72.  And I think that there is an English translation available, but I have
      not seen it?  But the original French is avaialble, so if you can cope with
      French you will be fine.

      It is an interesting book, but fundamentally flawed - I think.  Champigny, basically
      takes insult to a off the cuff comment by Sartre that: "An anti-communist is
      a dog".  Champigny produces a whole critique from that!  (I think he misses
      the real point of the comment, namely, that Sartre used the expression in the
      normal way... slang so to say... not as an insult for dogs).

      Anyway, the book is nonetheless interesting.

      Enjoy!!
