The text of the Josephine Onoh Memorial Lecture, given on 21 February 1989.

From the first page: I want to think aloud about a question which is easy to state but very difficult to answer. Why do we put up with it all? That question reflects a dull pain, an anguish, an anger even, that many people feel in considering the state of the world. It would be uttered as a sentimental question, not expecting an answer, at least not expecting a practical answer. But let us, for a while, treat it as a question to be answered in practical terms. 

Why do we put up with it all ? Obviously it is a question which implies three other questions - and it is those implied questions that give rise to all the difficulty. What exactly is it that so troubles us in the state of the world? What is the cause or origin of the things that trouble us? What could and should we do to change those things? Let us consider a practical example.....


The condition of the booklet is generally good. The cover has one or two minor scuffs, and colour fading along the right and bottom edges, but the staple spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound
