Description: This is a quite rare wartime pamphlet from Australia that excerpts two early Churchill speeches from May 4 and July 17, 1909, on the subjects, respectively, of "The Land Question" and "A New Social Order." Both speeches originally were collected in their entirety in LIBERALISM AND THE SOCIAL PROBLEM in 1909. The pamphlet was first issued in Australia under the title, THE MENACE OF LAND MONOPOLY, in 1941. It was then reissued the following year under this title. Thus, this constitutes the First Printing of the Second Edition, and not the Third Impression, as printed on the title page.
This is a virtually mint copy.
