has seemed to be eclipsed, he has steadfastly kept his face toward the dawn. I believe he and his young colleagues have a great work to do for Britain and the world. They will do it because all of them realise it is always the cause, the movement, that matters.

It is this spirit alone which will revolutionise the world. As I see things, the only social order worth striving after is one where,

“The common sense of most shall hold a fretful

realm in awe,
And the kindly earth shall slumber, lapt in

universal law.'

The only universal law I can conceive of is the law of love, which to me is the law of life, and this book is written by one who wishes to spread abroad that truth.

AUTHOR'S NOTE

I HAVE to thank my friends Robert Williams (Secretary, National Transport Workers' Federation); R. Page Arnot (Secretary, Labour Research Department); Sir Leo Chiozza Money; Norman Angell; W. N. Ewer; William Mellor; W. H. Thompson; and Major H. J. Gillespie, D.S.O., who have very kindly looked at portions of this book in proof. They have saved me from some errors; but there is, I fear, much left which some or all of them would consider erroneous.

Especially I have to thank my friend Dona Torr, without whose help it would have been impossible for me, in the time at my disposal, to complete the book at all.
