The title page and table of contents will sufficiently explain the nature and objects of this little work. The great struggle between the dominant few and the oppressed many is now commenced in right earnest; and the period of its duration, as well as the success of its final issue, are wholly dependant upon the kind and extent of popular knowledge. To emancipate society from its multifarious evils, we must distinctly trace out the causes in which they take their rise. An enlightened conviction of these would cut short the controversy which has been carried on for ages between the two great classes into which society is divided, and secure to the producers the management of their own affairs, and the enjoyment of the fruits of their own industry. The POLITICAL Text Book has been compiled with a view to this object, and it is presumed that he who will make himself familiar with the principles and facts embodied in its pages, will be fitted to contribute in no small degree towards the regeneration of society, and the happiness of mankind.
