Excerpt from The Case for Home Rule
Mr. Dicey's book, as the only serious presentation of the case against Home Rule, calls for the serious consideration of those against whom it is chieﬂy levelled. A volume ushered into the world with so much ceremony, accepted as a sort of gospel by a certain party, and affecting to be so sweepingly destructive of a great cause, demands a patient consideration. The book is in some sense a challenge, and I have ventured to lift the glove. Perhaps I should scarcely have so ventured if I had known earlier of Mr. Morley's purpose, but I was only aware of his intention of replying to Mr. Dicey in the pages of the Nineteenth Century when I was within measurable dis tance of the end of my own work. While, however, this book is intended in the main as a reply to Mr. Dicey's volume, it is not limited solely to that purpose, but is meant at the same time to set forth the real meaning of the movement for Home Rule, the meaning which Mr. Dicey has set himself to obscure and the movement which he has striven to retard.
