'Established in 1995, Politeia is a forum for discussing economic, constitutional and social policy. It focuses on the role of the state in people’s lives. Politeia aims to encourage the best policies for a free society under the rule of law, a prosperous economy based on free markets and competition, and excellent systems for education, health care and pensions. Its premise is that Britain’s prosperity and stability depend on democratic accountability: of government to parliament and parliament to the people. It also depends on getting the detail as well as the broad framework of policy right. Politeia works with leading authorities from both Britain and abroad, pioneers from the legal profession, academic life, the economy, business and politics. With them, Politeia publishes up to date research and analyses, and makes proposals on which successful government policy can be based. It also hosts conferences and events to discuss the details of policy.'

All three writers attract passionate support: John Cowper Powys’s expansive visionary novels have been hailed as comparable with the fictions of Dostoevsky and Tolstoy; T. F. Powys’s compact biblical prose combines mordant wit, melancholy, and profound meditation on life and death; Llewelyn, known mostly for his essays, has been described as "a philosophical poet relating the pleasures of his senses in the purest prose of his time". These three brothers are only three of the eleven children of Charles Francis Powys and Mary Cowper Powys whose remarkable family this website is glad to introduce.'
