Book Description

This volume describes the way in which the Fabian Society works, the distinctive contributions of individuals to that work, the structure they have built and the methods they have evolved to facilitate their labours. Some Fabians are dedicated to shaping economic and social policies, speaking or writing about them and devising the political strategy by which they may be put into practice. The author consulted original material which was available for the first time which has augmented former descriptions of the society and placed incidents in a new setting.
