Description
 
One of Chesterton's last books, this book is considered by Chesterton critics and fans as one of his finest collections of essays on a variety of cultural, social, and moral issues that seem even more urgent today. His trademark wit and perceptive analysis of the absurdities and excesses of modern life are here, but with a more serious tone than usual.

He diagnoses the rising threats of anti-Semitism and Nazism, of unchecked militarism and the dangerous idealism of pacifism, the problems of materialism and capitalism, the sickness of immoral sexual behavior and eugenics, the twin threats of fascism and communism, and much more.

Throughout his writings, always so prophetic and seemingly more timely now than when he lived, Chesterton fiercely defends the Church (the "Well") and Christian teachings as the source of wisdom, reason, compassion and strength to face all the dangers and evils in modern times (the "Shallows").
