HOW CAN COMPULSORY EDUCATION BE
MADE TO WORK IN ENGLAND ?
Reprinted, with Alterations, from the Fortnightly Review.
This Essay was written during the American Civil War, and was in part printed at the time for private circulation only.
I have been induced to publish it at this juncture, in the hope that a calm statement of the economic argument in favour of International Reform may obtain an impartial hearing at a time when the public mind is in some danger of being drawn off the true scent by the cry for increased armaments and the abandonment of the principle of non-intervention.
I have added a Postscript on the relation of the reform advocated in the Essay to the policy of non-intervention so earnestly advocated by the late Mr. Cobden.
