    Possibly the most important book on democracy written in the past 200 years

    Let me tell you the story of how this edition came to be. In 1996 I was invited to be part of a research team for a conference on social systems design. The New State was required reading for the group. However, the was hard to come by. I was lucky enough to find a 1918 edition in our State Library. This copy had never been read. I know that because the edges of many of the pages had not been cut and separated. After taking a knife carefully to the book, I read it and was amazed...transformed, even. After the conference, I approached a well-known political scientist about writing an introduction so that we could get it re-issued. At first he declined, but then he realized a colleague of his was an expert on Follett's time period. So he proposed to me that they both write introductions. Together we approached a publisher, who, after some review, agreed that it was worthy of re-issuing. They requested an original copy to use to create the new edition. The original would be destroyed in the process. It turns out that the one I'd found - the one that had never been read before I opened it - would be the one to be sacrificed to become the 1998 edition. In any event, Follett's work is remarkable, timeless, and important. And her writing flows well. Enjoy.
