Excerpt

In the autumn of the year 1906 I was honored by an invitation from the Civic Federation of New York to deliver a series of addresses, on the subject of socialism, in various parts of America. The project being a new one, there was some difficulty in deciding on the manner in which a subject so complex might be most profitably discussed before a succession of different audiences. The course finally adopted was that of dealing with various aspects of it in a series of five addresses, which were substantially, though not verbally, repeated in each of the cities visited by me. By this repetition a consecutive treatment was secured, but important aspects of the question were necessarily passed over, and it was not infrequently said by sympathizers and opponents alike that I failed to perceive even the existence of certain problems, which I had as a fact discussed carefully in my published works, and only passed over on the occasions now in question because circumstances rendered their adequate discussion impossible. In the present volume the substance of my addresses is reproduced, but the form is new, and the principal points omitted in them are here discussed in detail.
