G.K. Chesterton The War of the Children
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
This uncollected Chesterton article was first published in the Bystander on March 4, 1904. It was written at the time of the war between Tzarist Russia and Japan. Chesterton criticised the alliance formed between Britain and Japan at the time of this war; but, in this article, he does present Japan in a sympathetic light. The article takes the form of a parable about a far-away nation of children whose love for the toys of industrialism has given them the impetus to overcome a powerful empire that has become bored with its own mechanistic strength. Chesterton expressed similar ideas in his first novel. The Napoleon of Netting Hill also published in 1904.

G.K. Chesterton Some Urgent Reforms: The Human Circulating Library
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
The following uncollected Chesterton article was published in the Speaker of November 2, 1901 as part of a series entitled "Some Urgent Reforms." Chesterton's reference to Mr. Moody is, of course, a reference to Mr. Charles Edward Moody (1818-1890), the founder of the famous Moody's Lending Library. This Library was a peculiarly English institution, and was well known for the care which it took to avoid circulating literature that might be regarded as immoral.
