Chesterton looks at all aspects of modern, industrial capitalism, and finds them lacking. He analyzes the effect of the capitalist mentality on among other things art, culture, family life, work, and working conditions. With classic Chestertonian wit and rigorous logic, GKC points out how every single one of those aspects of daily, human life have suffered tremendously from an attitude that makes financial and material gain the End of life, at the expense of those higher and human values without which life is hardly worth living.
IHS Press is extremely pleased to introduce Mr. Aidan Mackey, English Chesterton scholar of singular renown.
Born in Manchester, England, in 1922, Aidan Mackey became a devotee of Chesterton at 14 when his brother challenged him to "read something useful." He obtained therefrom a firey passion that still dominates his life.
Along with H.D. Pepler and other notables, he founded the Distributist Association in 1947 and soon after became the editor of the journal, The Distributist, which saw publication from 1953-1960.
Mackey wrote Mr. Chesterton Comes to Tea (1979); The Wisdom of GKC (1986), currently being re-edited in a new edition for the Catholic Truth Society of England; and Hilaire Belloc and His Critics (1991). He was also instrumental in the recent establishment of the G.K. Chesterton Centre at Plater College, Oxford.
