The Diaries of Beatrice Webb Summary


The Diaries of Beatrice Webb by Beatrice Webb

These diaries present a unique record of the time in which Beatrice Webb and her husband, Sidney, lived. They were at the centre of British intellectual and political life for almost 70 years, and the diaries feature appearances by figures including Churchill, Bernard Shaw and Virginia Woolf. Rich in insights and anecdotes about the people and politics of late-Victorian and early modern Britain, the diaries reveal Beatrice as the mistress of salon politics. She devoted herself to the causes that she and Sidney had at heart - including the founding of the London School of Economics, trade unionism, local government, the war against poverty and their books.
