Product Description


This is a splendid, detailed, well-balanced and intelligent account of G.K.Chesterton's defense of ancient English ideals and loyalties, against imperialism, futurism and social Darwinism, and of the English people against plutocracy. Dr. Stapleton has done much to help restore Chesterton to his proper place as a well-informed and witty political philosopher. -- Stephen R.L.Clark, University of Liverpool Julia Stapleton's well-researched, insightful study is a significant contribution to Chesterton criticism and to British intellectual history. Her substantive and stimulating analysis sparks fresh understandings of the relationship between Chesterton's faith and his politics, and of constructions of British national identity in the early twentienth century. This pioneering integration of hitherto parallel discourses is a great service to scholars of modern British thought and culture; it deserves a wide and appreciative audience. -- Adam Schwartz, author of The Third Spring: G. K. Chesterton, Graham Greene, Christopher Dawson, and David Jones This is an intriguing and interesting study of one of the more intriguing men of letters of the early twentieth century. ELT Journal
