    Henry George was born on September 2, in Philadelphia. His father, Richard Samuel Henry George, a second generation immigrant from England, was a devout Episcopalian. Initially a dry good merchant and a customhouse clerk, he later became a vestryman at St. Paul’s Episcopalian Church and started publishing Sunday-school books.   Part 2: Why Churchill Abandoned the Theories of Henry George. In “Henry George and The People’s Rights” Andrew MacLaren intelligently considered the tax on land, proposed by the American economist Henry George. Winston Churchill as a crusading reformer in the early s endorsed George’s proposal.

    The Standard was the weekly paper highlighting news and viewpoints from Henry George's Single Tax movement during the height of its fervor in New York City. The paper ran for five years () The digital text files were converted and corrected from image files /5(4). Henry George published his spirited defense of free trade, Protection or Free Trade, in In this classic, George paid special attention to how protectionism affected the working class. Except for the slightly dated writing style and examples from a century ago, Protection or Free Trade could have been written yesterday.

    What I have done in this book, if I have correctly solved the great problem I have sought to investigate, is, to unite the truth perceived by the school of Smith and Ricardo to the truth perceived by the schools of Proudhon and Lasalle; to show that laissez faire (in its full true meaning) opens the way to a realization of the noble dreams of socialism; to identify social law with moral law.   This social biography of Henry George is a beautifully written, deeply researched, carefully argued, and analytically nuanced book. O'Donnell's own prodigious research, as well as his talent for synthesizing the findings of other scholars, makes this a social and political history of Gilded Age America as seen through the lens of Henry George's extraordinary life.
