Fabianism in the Political Life of Britain - 1919-1931

From the author:
"The Fabian Society consists of Socialists," as the first line of the Basis on the flyleaf of many a Fabian Tract declares. A Society which bears the heritage of Benthamite radicalism, it rose with strange genius in the 1880's, did effective work in the political life of Britain in the fin de siecle and up to 1914, permeated the reform movements of the times with Socialism, and survived the war. Revivified, it flourishes today as an agency for research, toward penetration and permeation of all societary orders with Socialism which it holds as a creed. There follows a brief sketch of its origins and early ideological patterns.
