This book covers work, wages, survival of the fittest and more. It was published in 1914.
It was advertised with the following description:
The series of essays which comprise this work, and ably edited by Mrs. James Allen, ﬁrst appeared in Bibby's Annual, and it is by Mr. Bibby's kind permission they are now given to the world in book form; their issue in this manner will give them a permanent place in the series of books which form the James Allen Library.
These Essays are remarkably fresh, original and inspiring, representing the matured thoughts of a gifted mind permeated with spiritual teaching. Apart from their spiritual character they contain much that is practical and which apply to this material world, including the progress of scientiﬁc research, and the advances accomplished and in course of accomplishment in the present era. Therefore, these essays are not of a visionary or of an imaginative character; they are imbued with a profoundly elevating tone, and will appeal with considerable force to the reflective mind, and to the student of metaphysical studies.
