Making socialists

Mary Bridges Adams and the fight for knowledge and power, 1855-1939

Jane Martin

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Shines a new light on the pioneering days of British Socialism
  • Recovers the lost histories of individuals who have been discounted
  • Re-examines the link between education and socialism at a crucial turning point in English education
  • Re-examines revolutionary politics in World War One
  • Interesting also because of the people Adams knew (such as George Bernard Shaw, William Morris and Daisy Warwick, the long-term love of Edward VII) and the circles in which she travelled
