During the forty-five years since Back to the Republic was first published in 1918, problems confronting our great Republic - which the author, Harry Atwood, recognized as inimical to the interests of liberty and freedom - have ripened into a constitutional crisis. Following the publication of the tenth edition, Back To the Republic was out of print for twenty-five years. Now this eleventh edition has been published. No changes have been made in the text matter of this book; the only departure from the original publication is the new title: Our Republic. Because of the urgent need today to recognize fundamental factors that contributed to the development of the United States of America into the great people of our Republic, this book is again made available. It is hoped that its forthright presentation will induce the citizens of our nation to raise their voices against the drift toward the establishment of a democracy, a form of government abhorred by our forefathers.
