The Gauntlet: A Challenge to the Myth of Progress


The Gauntlet, subtitled "A Challenge to the Myth of Progress," includes selections from Old Worlds for New (1917), Post-Industrialism (1922), Towards a Christian Sociology (1923), and Means and Ends (1932).

This first-ever anthology of Arthur Penty’s works presents a compelling vision both of what’s wrong with the world and of what kind of socio-economic order would help to make it right. The writings in this volume provide a sampling of Penty’s thorough and persuasive critique of the myths that dominate modern economic and social thought.

They also outline his intellectual and practical programme for the restoration of such essentials in economic life as the dignity of labour, justice in pricing, equity in property distribution, quality in craftsmanship, preservation of rural culture, and, above all, the recognition of spiritual Truth as the foundation of all real economic order
