 Our Description

Some of the topics of the 130 columns in the volume include "The Fashion of Psychoanalysts", "Doubts about Darwinism", "Liberty and Self Government", "Errors About Detective Stories", "The Settling of America", "Popular Literature and Popular Science", "Marxism and History", "The Threat of Novelty", "The Infinite Variety of Woman", "The Soul of the Modern Peasant", "Gilbert and the Jingoists", "Socialist Order and Democracy".

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.
