The Well and the Shallows was written in 1935 at the time of the Great Depression, and after his conversion to Catholicism, this is one of G K Chesterton's last works, a collection of essays whose themes would shape the 20th century and which resonate eerily with those of our own era.
Chesterton covers a variety of cultural, social, and moral issues including communism and capitalism, the sterility of party politics, the illusory 'left-right' divide (which serves only to maintain plutocratic opulence), the banking conspiracy, destruction of traditional society and the perfidy of Humankind.
All this in a series of 'light' essays, replete with Chesterton's trademark wit and irony. This is an extremely timely book - a lucid overview of social, religious, economic, philosophical, and political problems from a period that uncannily mirrors our own time.

The Well and the Shallows contains an interactive table of contents.
