A NOTE TO THE THIRD FRENCH EDITION

I have often been asked lately if I have not observed any facts since 1906 which invalidated some of the arguments set forth in this book. On the contrary, I am more than ever convinced of the value of this philosophy of violence. I have even thought it useful to add to this reprint an "Apology for Violence" which I published in the Matin of May 18, 1908, on the day when the first edition appeared.

This is one of those books which public opinion will not permit an author to improve; I have only allowed myself to change a few words here and there in order to make certain phrases clearer.
