Gilbert Keith Chesterton, (29 May 1874 - 14 June 1936) was a poet, novelist, playwright, literary commentator, editor, biographer, journalist, orator and theologian.

He advocated Distributionism and said that every man should be allowed to own "e;three acres and a cow."e; These political views have spread round the world, crediting Chesterton as the father of the "e;small is beautiful"e; movement.

As one of the world's most prolific writers, his main claim to fame is as the creator of Father Brown, but Chesterton's style and ideas in this work reveals a truth that makes it remarkably contemporary and relevant to the modern reader.

He is also critical at England's response to the French Revolution and the rise of Napoleon as well as in Ireland.. This is a fascinating and very different look at the domestic debate of the time and includes the slogan "e;every citizen is a revolution"e;
