summary
This is the second book in Kevin Morgan’s series Bolshevism and the British Left. It explores how the veteran Fabian socialists Beatrice and Sidney Webb came to regard Stalin’s Russia as a ‘new civilisation’ and the hope of the world. Through a meticulous reconstruction of the Webbs’ thinking, Morgan offers a challenging reassessment of accepted stereotypes. Drawing on their diaries, papers and published writings, he assesses the couple’s complex political evolution over some four decades, and shows how much more significant were their individual responses than the cliché of ‘two typewriters beating as one’ would suggest.
