Liberals and Social Democrats. by Peter Clarke (Author). ISBN-13: 978-0521286510. The book, which begins with Wallas and Hobhouse rejecting the church, ends with Barbara Hammond and Gilbert Murrray having doubts almost as severe about the modern world, and about trade unionism and working-class materialism. The presentation of the activity of thinking provides biographical threads to the book, and Clarke teases them out and plaits them with a skill in writing which conceals the historian's achievement in bringing together so much elusive and delicate material. The book is written with ease and is often amusing.

This ambitious and wide-ranging book is about the relationship between liberalism and socialism in Britain in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It focuses largely on a group of intellectuals whose names are familiar but whose work has been neglected or misunderstood. Graham Wallas is the forgotten man of early Fabianism. L. T. Hobhouse has misleadingly been typecast as the last major exponent of a dying liberal tradition. J. A. Hobson's reputation has been obscured by repeated claims that he was a precursor either of the Leninist theory of imperialism or of the Keynesian revolution in economics. The historical work of J. L. and Barbara Hammond has suffered similar revenges from the whirligig of time. There are other liberals or socialists - notably Gilbert Murray, Bernard Shaw, Sidney and Beatrice Webb, R. H. Tawney and J. M. Keynes - who receive considerable attention. In the later chapters the economic approaches of Hobson and Keynes are disentangled and put in their proper historical setting.
