"The twelve essays collected here demonstrate the thought of one of the most distinguished historians and philosophers of our time. Published over a period of forty years in a variety of newspapers, pamphlets, and books, they were no longer available to the general public and all but one of them here find their first American publication. The first section contains papers on three British Radicals - William Lovett, Robert Owen, and John Ruskin. Four papers on education make up the second section. The third section consists of four essays on politics where Tawney appears as the protagonist of the workers' rights and status in industry and the spokesman and philosopher of democratic socialism. The final paper is on social history and literature." Postscript by Hugh Gaitskell.; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
