One of Chesterton's last books, this book is considered by Chesterton critics and fans as one of his finest collections of essays on a variety of cultural, social and moral issues that seem even more urgent today. His trademark wit and perceptive analysis of the absurdities and excesses of modern life are here, but with a more serious tone than usual.… (mais)

I read the first edition, not listed on GR.

I hope it isn’t true, as described on GR, that this is his best collection of articles. It is my first of his. Curiously, although the GR blurb for it calls it a book of essays, one of the pieces in it specifically discusses the notion that he is writing something entirely different from that genre. Indeed, he seems to rather scorn the ‘essay’.

In the main it’s ponderous discussions of Catholicism. Almost however it starts, whether it’s Evolution, Fascism, Birth Control, Liberal politics, it fast becomes what’s good about Catholicism and bad about the other ones. Especially Protestantism, which being Germanic, is linked to the appalling state of affairs in Europe. The one unhesitating thumbs up for the book is that he gets stuck into Hitler, Nazis and Fascism.

His trademark wit and perceptive analysis of the absurdities and excesses of modern life are here, but with a more serious tone than usual.

He diagnoses the rising threats of anti-Semitism and Nazism, of unchecked militarism and the dangerous idealism of pacifism, the problems of materialism and capitalism, the sickness of immoral sexual behavior and eugenics, the twin threats of fascism and communism, and much more.
