About the Book

This book, originally published in 1949 (but here re-issuing the second edition of 1966) presents a history of international socialism, not just from the political but also the economic standpoint.


‘There seems to be no comparable work readily available for students. It runs through the international history of Socialism, in its political as well as its economic and intellectual dimensions.’ - British Book News

‘It is surprising down how many vistas he has looked in so short a compass.’ - New Statesman
