Charles A Watts
Describes the role played by the recently deceased Charles Bradlaugh in 'the bitter conflicts by which an organised freethought party was built up in this country' (235). Asserts that 'To-day, largely because of the work this man has done for liberty, thought and criticism have become so free that they seem a matter of course' (238). Also recounts how the publication of Charles Knowlton's neo-Malthusian The Fruits of Philosophy led to a celebrated obscenity trial (242).
