Economic Problems of War and Its Aftermath

By Chester W. Wright | Go to book overview

FOREWORD

LECTURES given under the Charles R. Walgreen Foundation for the Study of American Institutions at the "University of Chicago are designed to assist students toward an understanding of contemporary life in the United States--its background in history, its ideals, values, and institutions, its present needs and possible future. To foster an intelligent citizenship and patriotism, not narrowly nationalistic in their expression, and with thought and knowledge much more than emotion as their basis, is a principal purpose of this Foundation.

Five of the six Walgreen Foundation lecture series of the university year 1940-41, and Religion and the Present Criris, the first of the three series of 1941-42, have already been published. The present volume is the second of these three and will be followed before the close of this year by the third, to be entitled American Philosophy of Democracy. As groups of addresses they were prepared for delivery before audiences of students. As separate volumes they, in similar manner, particularly invite laymen rather than specialists to be their readers. In their published form they represent an effort of the Walgreen Foundation to extend its usefulness beyond the limits of the University of Chicago campus. This effort, however, could not have been made without the generous co-operation of the authors, the editors, and the University of Chicago Press.

WILLIAM T. HUTCHINSON Executive Secritary, Charles R. Walgreen Foundation for the Study of American Institutions
