from the Preface: "This volume contains articles which have appeared under my name, in the Melbourne Herald and other Australian journals, since the outbreak of war (with one pre-war paper by way of prelude). They make a sort of diary; a record of what one Australian thought and felt about events in these tremendous months. There is nothing original or profound in them, but I have reason to believe that they did put into words what many other Australians were thinking and feeling about the same events. It is only fair to add that every one of the articles in this selection brought me letters of more or less violent disagreement."
