Excerpt from Problems of Expansion: As Considered in Papers and Addresses

These volumes assemble some of the more important contributions made by Whitelaw Reid to the discussion of matters of public interest. They are designed to illustrate both his purely intellectual habit and his point of view as a citizen. The publicist is, in a measure, a man of action, exercising an influence which, if not always immediately obvious, is nevertheless often decisive,and Mr. Reid's career brought him into very close and effective contact with the subjects here treated. More than once he stepped down into the arena itself. The ideas on government embodied in many of these pages were developed not only in the study, but amongst other practical leaders, fighting for political ideals which were of value, in his opinion, solely as they found expression in just laws and the betterment of American life.

His nomination as Vice-President on the ticket with Benjamin Harrison in 1892 did not bring him his first experience as an active participant in political campaigning. He had assumed that role as early as 1856, when, being still too young to vote, he nevertheless took the stump for Fremont.
