Not to speak of the many who are actually members of a legislative assembly, we observe that nearly every man we know - and for the matter of that, woman, also - belongs to a society, of some sort or description, that has its by-laws, rules of order, and debates.

One ought to feel positively thankful at possessing even an inkling of the mode whereby the proceedings of a meeting are conducted after a parliamentary fashion.If, for the purpose of increasing a moderate stock of knowledge upon the subject, one resorts to manuals or treatises of the day - admirable as they are in many respects - it is only to come across a text that is dry, technical, and consequently unattractive. It has occurred to the writer that principles of parliamentary practice are capable of being treated so as to make a work interesting and entertaining, no less than instructive.

In other words, that an experiment might be made to impart to the subject a literary form. I have tried to write a book that shall be readable- that shall engage the attention and sustain the interest of what is known as the general reader.Legislative experience is not without its humorous incidents. These I have not hesitated to use, in order to keep the reader fairly well entertained.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
