A collection of papers, written over a period of thirty years, and now for the first time available in book form. They fall into three classifications: Economic, War Essays, Miscellaneous. And many of them are startlingly timely in their application to such present day problems as Bolshevism, the Jews, the aftermath of the war. Veblen's fame has gathered momentum. This book forms part of the picture. His biography is coming in November -- this helps the groundwork.
