9780415124737: Socialism and Superior Brains: The Political Thought of George Bernard Shaw

Available in paperback for the first time, Gareth Griffith's book provides a comprehensive critical account of the political ideas of one of the most influential commentators of the twentieth century.
With close reference to a range of Shaw's texts, from the Fabian tracts to the plays, Gareth Griffith draws out the central theoretical messages of Shaw's engagement with politics. The first part of the book provides an intellectual biography, while at the same time analysing Shaw's key concerns in relation to his Fabianism, arguments for equality of income and ideas on democracy and education. Part Two looks at those areas which Shaw approached as long-standing historical problems or dramas requiring immediate thought or action; sexual equality, the Irish question, war, fascism and sovietism.
The book is directed to the general reader as well as to specialists. It will be central reading for anyone seeking to understand Shaw's life, and literary and political writings, or the development of political thinking in this century, or the problems and potential inherent in socialism.

About the Author:

Gareth Griffith was formerly Senior Lecturer in Politics at the City of London Polytechnic and has lectured at La Trobe University. Currently, he is a member of the Australian Film Censorship Board.

Review:

"Such a study as Gareth Griffith's is long overdue and the result has been worth waiting for: a masterly study, comprehensive, sensitive and ...so well written as to be the Intelligent Socialist's Guide to Shaw."
-Bernard Crick, "The New Statesman
