Summary

In this volume Mr. Chesterton has tackled with his customary gaiety of heart and uncanny shrewdness of eye and hand no less a trinity than socialism, woman's suffrage, and the new education. He begins by proclaiming that what is wrong with the world is chiefly that we have got out of the habit or asking what is right before we begin the diagnosis of the evil and the eager advocacy of a remedy. His method is his favorite one of accepting the stock retorts of his adversaries at their face value, and proceeding to discover in these the ultimate confirmation of his own views and the utter confounding of theirs. All over, this book is full of brilliant, paradoxical and entertaining essays.
