Dr. James L. Busey, professor of political science, University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, is the author of Notes on Costa Rican Democracy (Boulder: University of Colorado Press, 1967), Latin America: Political Institutions and Processes (New York: Random House, 1965), and the annual Latin American Political Guide (El Paso: Texas Western Press, University of Texas at El Paso, 11th ed., 1967; Manitou Springs, Cob.: Juniper Editions, 12th ed., 1969).  His chapters have appeared in four different books on Latin America.  He is the author of articles, essays and book reviews that have appeared in Social Studies, Colorado Quarterly, Revista del Instituto Tecnologico de Monterrey, Historia Mexicana, The Western Political Quarterly, The New Leader, The Nation, Midwest Quarterly, The Americas, and The American Political Science Review.  Several of his articles have appeared as reprints in books and journals both here and abroad.  Now he has turned his talents as scholar and editor to producing this sharply abridged version of Henry George's Progress and Poverty, which it is our privilege to publish.  His motivation is candidly stated in the adjoining Foreword.  It coincides, at least in part, with our own belief in the credo of a great American journalist who said, "Give light and the people will find their way." We shall not, of course, conceal our hope that those whose introduction to George comes through these pages will be tempted to pursue their acquaintance by reading the unabridged volume.
