Synopsis
Seven essays that five authors have written and published over the past decade look at Fabianism, the leftist political thought and movement that scholars and activists now generally consider ordinary and uninteresting, and the remarkable British sisters who advocated it around the turn of the century. The political economy of everyday life, the Webbs and the rights of women, the Fabian Women's Group, the National Standard for Manual Handling, and Fabianism and Marxism are among the perspectives presented.
