Recommended Posts

Dundee Courier - Friday 2 March 1923

The anonymous author of " The Pomp of Power " is publishing today a new volume " The Path to Peace " in which he describes and criticises certain post war incidents at home and abroad.etc etc

The author was Laurance Lyon, why did he publish anonymously?

The volume " The Path to Peace " is not available on archive.org yet. Two other interesting titles are available:

The Pomp of Power

The Fruits of Folly

New York Times 1922

"Let us hope thatThe Pomp of Power" will be the last of the anonymous books. It would have added greatly to the force of this one if the writer were courageous enough to sign it; but, after all, most of us who believe in reconstruction will not regret this lack of force in a book which, with all its power of style and keen insight, tends toward the fostering of distrust and hopelessness."

He was a Conservative MP for Hastings, but resigned 13/4/1921 wiki Possibly to do with these books? Can't see much in Hansard, or BNA, will keep looking.
