GKC And GBS In The New Age

G. K. Chesterton and George Bernard Shaw were, among the other things they were, two of the most prominent British public intellectuals of their era. They toured together, having public debates, and exchanged sallies in the popular press. I revere Chesterton, and grudgingly respect Shaw.

So imagine my pleased surprise when I discovered that Brown University had scanned and posted a number of issues of an Edwardian opinion journal, The New Age. Thanks to the wonders of the internet age, it's possible to zero in on issues of it with articles by or about the two luminaries. Like this!
