In this important book, G.K. Chesterton offers a remarkably perceptive analysis of social and moral issues, even more relevant today than in his own time. With a light, humorous tone but a deadly serious philosophy, he comments on errors in education, on feminism vs. true womanhood, on the importance of the child, and other issues, using incisive arguments against the trendsetters assaults on the common man and the family.

Chesterton possessed the genius to foresee the dangers of implementing modernist proposals. He knew that lax moral standards would lead to the dehumanization of man. In this book, he staunchly defends the family against those ideas and institutions that would subvert it and thereby deliver man into the hands of the servile state. In addressing what is wrong, he also shows clearly what is right, and how to change things in that direction.

    " I've heard several good things about Chesterton. While this was a fairly decent read, I did not agree with all of his arguments, nor did I feel that he defended them to the best of his ability. I plan to read other works by Chesterton. "

    " Facinating approach to gender differences and societal organization. Helps me to understand his opinions regarding democracy much better. "

    " If you like reading Chesterton rant about whatever crosses his mind, you'll love this book. "

    " Enjoyed this one a lot, even though I didn't always get Chesterton's witty jabs at 19th-century English culture, mostly because I'm not a 19th-century English person. And it was fun to see where some of my favorite GK quotes come from--like "if a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly." "
