FROM THE BOOK FOREWORD:
These papers as one sees, may roughly be put into three groups. The First is chiefly devoted to political polemics, mainly newspaper polemics at that. The contents of these articles have no importance in themselves. In a way, they were meant only for the occasion when they were written. They are alive with the spirit of thrust and counter thrust which is the characteristic of political battles particularly those conducted in the field of electioneering.
They can serve one useful purpose at a later date also. This is, as I take the justification for their inclusion in this volume. They will supply to the reader of a later age some of the psychological glow, that touch of excitement, which animated those who took part in those old battles. Without something of the psychological. Material an account of the events of those days might appear to be very dull reading.
There is the second class of papers closely allied to the first but longer, going deeper and supplying more food to thought. Such material would be invaluable for anyone who, say after a decade or so, wants to go into the history of those days.
He will get from articles like these not only material for understanding what happened and why it happened, he would be able to form an idea on why certain individuals and slogans were able to capture the popular imagination. What part reason played in the statements issued by various parties? In short, this supplies that absolutely necessary fill-in material without which no history of the recent Past could be a well connected and comprehensive narrative.
There is also I must point out the third class among those papers, unfortunately much too few in numbers. This class of pape3rs goes much beyond the present tim4e even though they w3ere dictated by circumstances which arose in a temporary set up.
