Excerpt from Imagination, Labour, Civilization

The author of the present work, the late Mr. Einar Sundt, was born at Christiania in 1854 and died during a visit to Stockholm in 1917.

His father was the famous Eilert Sundt, a clergyman by profession, and one of the most striking personalities of nineteenth-century Norway. Eilert Sundt was above everything else a keen realist, imbued with a deep patriotism and a highly developed conception of the social aspects of life. He made it his life-work to penetrate into the very depth of his nation's existence, to study the conditions under which it lived, and to explain its mentality on the basis of the facts he had observed. It is the lasting honour of Eilert Sundt to have given us a more faithful picture of Norway in the middle of last century than any of his contemporaries, especially as far as the lower classes are concerned; but the economic aspects, quite naturally, did not present themselves to him in the same way as they did to his son. In Eilert Sundt's works economic questions hold an inferior place. To Einar Sundt they were the very pivot of society; and, throughout his life, he studied them with an intense interest, chiefly from a practical point of view in his capacity as editor of the well-known Norwegian weekly journal Farmand, which he founded in 1891.

At the time when he started Farmand, Mr. Sundt had about ten years' experience behind him as a contributor on economic questions to some of the leading papers in Norway and Sweden. During the whole of this period Mr. Sundt lived in London, where he got the pronounced predilection for England and the English which never forsook him.
