Stapledon, Sir R.George

Original publisher: London: Faber and Faber Ltd
Publication status: Out of print
This is a collection of Stapledon’s lectures and short essays, issued mainly in response to the stress WWII placed on feeding the population. In his time he was regarded as a highly progressive commentator, much as Wendell Barry is currently viewed. In the perspective of today’s world scene Stapledon’s reactionary views on the righteousness of British imperialism certainly give one doubts about how the future might look at our current crop of progressive thinkers.
