Excerpt from You Might Like Socialism: A Way of Life for Modern Man

My purpose in this book is to give, in simple and understandable language, an inclusive survey of the main reasons that prompt contemporary Americans from every walk of life, including members of the upper and middle class, to adopt Socialism as the way out for this country and the world. As the title indicates, I invite the reader in the spirit of free and undogmatic discussion to consider the case for a Socialist society and to reach his own conclusions.

It would of course be impossible, simply for reasons of space, to include the many different strands of study, discussion and personal experience which over a number of years have gradually led me to become a radical. Nor could I even recall all the impressions, some of them trivial in themselves alone, which have entered into my intellectual and emotional processes to stimulate and reinforce my Socialist position. A number of significant questions I have naturally not been able to treat very fully, and many matters of detail I have not been able to take up at all. Other volumes, classics in the field, perform these tasks.

My indebtedness is obvious and far-reaching to writers on Socialism such as Robert W. Dunn, L. E. Hubbard, Leo Huberman, George Soule, Sidney and Beatrice Webb, Albert Rhys Williams and, above all, John Strachey. But the opinions expressed in this book are my own and I alone bear the responsibility for them.

I wish to thank especially the following individuals for their invaluable co-operation and counsel in the writing and publication of this book: Theodore Bayer, Alice W. Field, Henrietta Weigel, Josephine White, and my wife, Margaret I. Lamont, whose sharing of common social aims and ideals with me is a steady source of strength and inspiration.
