1 The Outline of Sanity G. K. Chesterton
G. K. Chesterton IHS Press 2002-09-01 0971489408 / 9780971489400 Paperback New Paperback 
New, For Chesterton fans this collection of articles written over eighty years ago are vintage. The author arranged the articles in book format by sections and chapters giving to the whole the salient title: The Outline of Sanity. Master of paradox that he is, Chesterton, the philosopher, exposes the enslaving and dehumanizing aspects of an economy dependent upon monopolistic plutocrats and their so called "labor saving" machines of mass production. WIth his penchant for balacing satire with humor this literary giant provides a common sense solution to this age's fast pace trek to nowhere.

Utopia of Usurers G. K. Chesterton, G. K. Chesterton; Aidan Mackey
2 Utopia of Usurers G. K. Chesterton
G. K. Chesterton; Aidan Mackey IHS Press 2002-10-01 0971489432 / 9780971489431 Paperback New Paperback 
New; Utopia is a collection of over two dozen of Chesterton's most trenchant essays on what Capitalism is, and how bad it is, in both precise and readable terms. He cuts to the core, and tears away polite illusions and pathetic excuses, demonstrating that modern Capitalism stands condemned not only by the Catholic Faith but by every sane view of the world. Not for the ideologically squamish, Utopia of Usurers is a book which Aidan Mackey has called "Chesterton's angriest!"

Twelve Types A Collection of Mini-Biographies G. K. Chesterton, G. K. Chesterton; Malcolm Brennan
3 Twelve Types A Collection of Mini-Biographies G. K. Chesterton
G. K. Chesterton; Malcolm Brennan IHS Press 2002-12-01 0971489483 / 9780971489486 Paperback New Paperback 
New; Twelve Types is a collection of short biographical essays, by one of 20th century England's greatest essayists. In keeping with the spirit of IHS Press, that there is a Catholic way to look at everything, this book figures as Tolstoy, St. Francis, Savonarola, William Morris, and others, in the history of the West and from an unabashedly Catholic perspective. With typical wit and flair, Chesterton accomplished what modern biography most often fails to do: discuss the important and central elements of the characters it presumes to examine, while omitting tedious discussion on matters of little import. Chesterton looks at the souls, the characters, and the lives of some of the West's most important gigures, providing modern readers with a sane and Catholic orientation to their approach to these great individuals.

Irish Impressions G. K. Chesterton, G. K. Chesterton; Preface-Seton Hall University, Dr. Dermot Quinn
5 Irish Impressions G. K. Chesterton
G. K. Chesterton; Preface-Seton Hall University, Dr. Dermot Quinn Ihs Press 2002-10-01 0971489459 / 9780971489455 Paperback New Paperback 
New; The war in Ireland has spanned eight centuries, alternately blowing hot and cold, appearing at times to fade away, only to flare up more forecfully later on. According to the "experts" and media pundits, the conflict is one of religion. But Chesterton reveals in Irish Impressions that at heart the problem is one of freedom. The Irish man wants to be master in his own home, speaking his own language, reading his own books, and drinking his own whiskey. It is a war for the Irish Hearth, the Irish Home, and - ultimately - the integrity of the Irish Soul. This book is the fruit of Chesterton's short visit to Ireland and his long contemplation of political, economic, social and family life. A thoughtful reading of it can only lead to a genuine understanding of the nature of the conflict, and may yet help in bringing peace to both Ireland and England.
