 Our Description

Can Chesterton always be at his best? Well, Chesterton is always Chesterton. Here is a scattered sampling of the titles in this third volume of Illustrated London News articles: "Fashionable Suffragettes and the Truly Feminine", "Bad Sentences and Bad Theology", "Capitalism and Marriage", "The Failure of Words in Our Time", "On Glorifying Divorce", "The Modern Anti-Democracy", "Modern Womanhood", "Too Much Vox Populi?", "The Curse of Labels", "The Broadening Down of Democracy", "Science in America", "The Causes of War", "On Being Old-Fashioned", and--surely helpful for us all--"The Right to Denounce Things".

Volumes 27 through 37 are collected columns from The Illustrated London News. Most of the weekly articles Chesterton wrote for The Illustrated London News have never been printed in book form until Ignatius Press undertook to do the collected works. These volumes contain all of Chesterton's columns in The Illustrated London News, beginning in 1905. The great majority have never appeared in book form. Chesterton lovers will be delighted to find this treasure filled with jewels quite the match of his best writing.
