A substantial elementary treatise on socialism, intended as a textbook for group or home study, "to help those who are trying to help others in the long warfare against oppression and so to have some share in helping to make a speedy and peaceful transition from the outworn social forms, by which we are surrounded and of which we are the victims..." Mills (1856-1942) was a leading voice of the moderate wing of the Socialist Party, known for his small stature (four and a half feet tall) and rousing oratorical style.
