Although deeply patriotic, he was one of the few to oppose the Boer War. A gifted literary critic, he nevertheless defended penny dreadfuls read by young boys and condemned by almost everyone else. And in an era of unbridled capitalism and fashionable socialism, he unleashed telling broadsides against both.

In 1908 his brother Cecil wrote this biography. That book is now back in print in an enhanced and enlarged Centennial Edition with numerous notes explaining the context and appendices with both sides of G. K. Chestertons famous 1908 debate about socialism with H.

G. Wells and Bernard Shaw, including Chestertons marvelous On Wells and a Glass of Beer.
