Overview

In this volume we have the publication of an interesting series of letters which passed between R. R. La Monte, editor of the New York "Daily Call" (Socialist), and H. L. Mencken, editor of the Baltimore "Sun," dealing with the general subject of Socialism. Mencken, the individualist and ardent follower of Nietzsche, most skillfully attacks the arguments of La Monte, the Socialist, and shows a surprisingly thorough grasp not only of his own, but also of his opponent's philosophy. Mr. La Monte's portion of the correspondence is marred by too frequent and too lengthy quotations from various socialist and sociological works. There is nothing new either as regards fact or theory in the volume, but it is nevertheless an interesting contribution as it shows how variously the accepted facts and theories appeal to these two men of radically different philosophies.
