Chesterton on Men, Women, Children & Society
In this book, we meet Jones, the common man, and his enemies Hudge and Gudge. These three fascinating characters (or, really, "types," as this is a work of non-fiction) are the means by which Chesterton exposes what is wrong with the world, and gives us a glimpse of what things would look like if made right.
You can read what Dale Ahlquist of the American Chesterton Society says about the book here. If you want to purchase a copy of the book (along with some other of Chesterton's social criticism works), click here; or read the book online.
I have called this book "What Is Wrong with the World?" and the upshot of the title can be easily and clearly stated. What is wrong is that we do not ask what is right.
