THE FUTURE OF ENGLAND

 

BY

HON. GEORGE PEEL

AUTHOR OF
THE ENEMIES OF ENGLAND’ AND ‘THE FRIENDS OF ENGLAND

1912

 

 
 

PREFACE

 

I published The Enemies of England in 1902, and The Friends of England in 1905.

I now beg to submit The Future of England, the last volume of this short series.

The first two books described the forces of hostility and of friendship which work against us, and for us, from without.

This book purports to give an account of the inward forces determining our future, and attempts to indicate the result.

GEORGE PEEL.
