Thomas Linehan offers a fresh perspective on late Victorian and Edwardian socialism by examining the socialist revival of these years from the standpoint of modernism. In so doing, he explores the modernist mission as extending beyond the concerns of the literary and artistic avant-garde to incorporate political and social movements.

THOMAS LINEHAN read History at the University of York, UK, went on to receive his doctorate in History from the University of London, and is currently Lecturer in History at Brunel University. He has published widely on political and social movements in Britain, 1880s-present.
