University Rochester Press, 1997 - Business & Economics - 253 pages
During the latter half of the nineteenth century, a number of `social philosophers' gained pre-eminence throughout North America and Europe for their writings and speeches, Henry George being one of the best known; often referred to as `progressivists', they sought to expose the established and growing socio-economic iniquities that were the result of swift industrialisatio, and called for a new political ecomony and social order.
This book, the first in a trilogy, examines the basics of Henry George's political and social philosophy. Through careful and exhaustive research into George's original works (including Progress and Poverty, Our Land and Land Policy and articles in the Standard), the editor has compiled in one volume the essentials required for a clear and comprehensive understanding of Henry George's thinking. Volume I: An Anthology of Henry George's ThoughtVolume II: An Anthology of Tolstoy's Spiritual EconomicsVolume III: An Anthology of Single Land Tax
