This volume includes the collected plays of G. K. Chesterton, his controversial writings on Bernard Shaw (who referred to GKC as a colossal genius), and a bibliography. Many of the items appear for the first time in book form. Among his plays included here are: "The Wild Knight", "Magic", "The Judgment of Dr. Johnson", "The Turkey and the Turk", and "The Surprise". Among his writings on Shaw included here are: "Do We Agree?" (a debate), "How I Found the Superman", "Sorry, I'm Shaw", and "A Salute to the Last Socialist".

Chesterton himself gives the best summary of what we found in this volume when he says of Shaw: "I have argued with him on almost every subject in the world; and we have always been on opposite sides without affectation or animosity. I have defended the institution of the family against his Platonic fancies about the state ... institutions of beef and beer against his hygienic severity of vegetarianism and total abstinence.... It is necessary to disagree with him as much as I do in order to admire him as I do; and I am proud of him as a foe even more than as a friend."
