So many wrong notions are current on ownership in general, and landownership in particular, that I believe I shall render the cause of truth and justice a real service by re-issuing in book-form, revised and enlarged, the following papers, originally contributed to the Catholic Fortnightly Review. They contain the only detailed presentation of the subject in English, together with the first documentary account ever published of the famous McGlynn case.The reader will find upon perusal that, in answering the question Who owns the land? this little volume refutes not only Agrarian Socialism, or the Single Tax theory of Henry George, which is of late enlisting so many new recruits - I regret to say even among Catholics - but likewise the fundamental fallacy underlying Socialistic Communism, which in the opinion of so many farsighted observers constitutes the greatest social menace of the future.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
