LIBERALISM AND THE SOCIAL PROBLEM is one of the less well known of Churchill's works, dealing mainly with turn of the century political issues. This work is extremely scarce and is rarely offered even by the major London dealers. The first edition was published by Hodder & Stoughton, London in December 1909 in an edition of 5000 copies. Bound in plain smooth cherry red cloth, with an illustrated dustjacket, of which two examples are known to survive. I must confess that I find this hundred year old politics to be heavy going, and would not suggest this title as one of Churchill's most readable. The US first by the New York office of Hodder & Stoughton is very similar in appearance with minor changes in blocking and a New York imprint on the title page. Other than a US library edition, there have been no reprints. If your collection lacks this work, buy now!! This one can only get scarcer.
