Chesterton conjures up a London neighborhood that has become an independent city, fond of pageantry and traditional ways, isolated by high walls from the rest of the world. When its rights and autonomy are threatened by modernizzing neighbors, war breaks out. It is a war fought not with astounding new weapons, but with swords and battle-axes, and it is waged for a cause in which the author deeply believed.
The Man Who was Thursday, Detective Syme is determined to discover everything about a club of anarchists, so he decides to infiltrate the resistance group and then he unwittingly, and unwillingly, gets caught up suddenly and finds himself elected to their council!

G. K. Chesterton is already a staple in the Hendrickson list with "Orthodoxy" and "Heretics" in the Hendrickson Christian Classics series. Known primarily for his non-fiction, he also wrote fiction, and "The Napoleon of Notting Hill" and "The Man Who was Thursday" are among his best known and most loved novels.
"The Napoleon of Notting Hill," his first novel, tells the story of residents of a London suburb who take up arms and declare their independence from England. Line drawings are included throughout.
"The Man Who was Thursday," his most famous novel, tells the story of a policeman who becomes unwittingly--and unwillingly--caught up in a resistance group that is infiltrating a secret organization of anarchists.
