Excerpt from The Science of Civilisation or the Principles of Agricultural, Industrial, and Commercial Prosperity

Those who have read my earlier work, "The Redemption of Labour," can judge for themselves how far that now presented is a condensation of it, and how far, through Part III., a logical and inevitable extension. For others, I have not thought it necessary to encumber these pages with any but the most occasional references to previous works on economics, even to those of the accepted authorities. All who are students of the science will be able to make any useful comparisons for themselves, while for those who are not, and yet perhaps may be readers of this work, the space that could have been given to quotation and discussion would have been too limited to have resulted in enlightenment. For one of the chief difficulties in dealing with so vast and suggestive a subject has been to reduce the book to a size that a harassed public can read, while supplying such explanations and applications as suffice to give clearness and point to its principles. These, paradox though it may sound, claim to be new only because they are old - so old, indeed, as to have been buried and then forgotten under the later and purely naturalistic growths of Rome.
