 Our Description

The topics of the 150 columns in the volume include: "The Real Problem with Religious Toleration", "The Modern Longing for Slavery", "America in a Rut", "The Ku Klux Klan and American Conservatism", "An Artist's Satire on War", "The Monster Called Man".

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.
