Klappentext

Excerpt from How England Is Governed

England - national and local' the old Local Government Board, the Home Office, and the Treasury. I have seen the machine from outside and from inside: from outside, as a critic of the Central Authority from amongst the local muni cipal authorities, or as an independent Private Member of the House of Commons challenging the Administration; from inside, as part of that Central Authority replying to the local criticism, or as a Member of the Government defying or placating the attacks of the Private Member. Perhaps this experience may put colour and interest into an account of organization otherwise of necessity tending to dullness and drabness, and help to make the dry bones live.' My main object has been to endeavour to interest the citizen in the conduct of his own affairs. I have had in my mind especially as possible readers the classes who are just realizing what citizenship means - the students in colleges and the higher forms of schools, the men and women of the Universities, and that rapidly growing class of young Intellectual Labour which to-day is breaking through the former disability of poverty and dis comfort, and is eagerly seeking knowledge of the government of this country, with a view to future active participation in it.
