Fabian Essays in Socialism
Britain's Fabian Society was founded in 1884 to promote non-Marxist evolutionary socialism, and later laid the foundations for the nation's Labour Party. These educational essays, adapted from a series of lectures delivered in 1889 and published the following year, serve not only as an introductory course in democratic applications of socialism but also as a primer in the history of modern British politics. Essays include. . George Bernard Shaw on the economic basis of socialism, and transitioning to social democracy . Sidney Webb on the history of socialism in England . William Clarke on the capitalist roots of socialism . Sydney Oliver on morality and socialism . Graham Wallas on property, wealth, and debt under socialism . Annie Besant on the workings of industry in a socialist system . Hubert Bland on the future of modern socialism.
