This antiquarian book contains Gilbert Keith Chesterton's 1926 thesis, "The Outline of Sanity". Within this famous book Chesterton explores the subjects of poverty, concentration of wealth, work, agriculture, machinery, and capital gain. Chesterton championed wealth distribution, but was staunchly opposed to socialism; he was an advocate of private ownership, but was an anti-capitalist. This fascinating text will appeal to those with an interest in economics, and it constitutes a veritable must-read for fans of Chesterton's seminal work. The chapters of this book include: "Some General Ideas", "The Beginning of the Quarrel", "The Peril of the Hour", "The Chance of Recovery", "Some Aspects of Big Business", "The Bluff of the Big Shops", "A Misunderstanding about Method", "A Case in Point", "The Tyranny of Trusts", "Some Aspects of the Land", etcetera. We are republishing this vintage text now in an affordable, modern edition - complete with a new biography of the author.
