Item Description...
Overview
Volumes 27 through 37 are collected columns from The Illustrated London NewsMost 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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
More Rare Treasures from GKC  Nov 22, 2005
These 3-5 page editorials cover the usual wide range of social, political, historical, literary and moral topics GK wrote about with so much gusto. As an added bonus, this volume contains about five months-worth of wonderful essays written by Hilaire Belloc, who pinch-hit while GK was traveling.

Rather than make a feeble attempt to summarize the brilliance and scope of these essays, I'll take just one as an example, April 1, 1922. In just a few pages, GK deals with business ethics, excessive societal legalism, science versus religion, the breakdown of law and order, moral chaos, the dangers of bureaucracy, and the dangers of amorally applied science--all in a way that is completely relevant today. Some quotes...

"...for the modern man is in favour of introducing order into everything except his own ideas."

"...it is just as possible to organise slackness as to organize efficiency..."

"It is much nearer the truth to say that they [the police] fail because society is being far too much organised. A scheme of official control which is too ambitious for human life has broken down...instead of law being a strong cord to bind what it is really possible to bind, it has become a thin net to cover what it is quite impossible to cover."

"The truth is that any advance in science leaves morality in its ancient balance; and it depends still on the inscrutable soul of man whether any discovery is mainly a benefit or mainly a calamity. This is, perhaps, the strongest argument for a morality superior to materialism, and a religion that refuses to be bullied by science."

"For mind as much as machinery depends for its good or evil not on its force, but on its direction."

Well worth contemplating eighty years later!
