Social problems



From preface
This book was written in New York in 1883, which will ex- plain references made in its pages to time and place. My endeavour has been to present the momentous social problems of our time, unencumbered by technicalities, and without that abstract reasoning that some of the principles of Political Economy require for a thorough explanation.

\ I have spoken in this book of some points not touched upon, or but lightly touched upon, in "Progress and Poverty," but there are other points as to which I think it would be worth the while for those who may be interested in this book to read that.
