Distilling the work of Father Vincent McNabb's years of preaching in London's Hyde Park, this challenging and entertaining book examines urbanised and industrialised life. The arguments claim that urban life has a deleterious effect on nature, community, family, and the spirit and offer a challenge to flee to the fields , seeking a life t dominated by techlogy and artificial schedules but by the forces of God and nature. Newly edited and antated, this edition stands as an important work of English social criticism.
