Through a meticulous reconstruction of the British socialists, economists, and reformers Sidney and Beatrice Webb’s way of thinking, this study offers a challenging reassessment of accepted stereotypes, revealing theirs to be a mindset that was far less idiosyncratic than is commonly claimed. Drawing on their diaries, papers, and published writings, this expertly researched critical analysis assesses the couple’s complex political evolution over some four decades, artfully illustrating their love affair with Soviet communism.
Kevin Morgan is a professor of politics and contemporary history at the University of Manchester. He is the author of Harry Pollitt and coauthor of Communists in British Society 1920–1991.
