This book is a full-scale study of the world's most famous secret society, the Cambridge "Apostles." It shows how the Apostles recruited their members, examines their intellectual preoccupations, and studies the careers of such figures as F. D. Maurice, Lytton Strachey and John Maynard Keynes by tracing the participation of the Apostles in politics, letters, and liberal reform in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The book also examines the role of liberalism, imagination, and friendship in modern life.

Review:

"This is a rich study, immensely useful in telling us so much about 255 men who had, to a great degree, such an effect on their age and who were also so emblematic of what was best and most signigicant in the long nineteenth century." Peter Stansky, Albion

"...everyone who is interested in Victorian intellectuals will welcome this book, and read it with care and profit." Christopher Kent, Canadian Journal of History

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This book offers a highly engaging history of the world's most famous secret society, the Cambridge 'Apostles', based upon the lives, careers and correspondence of the 255 Apostles elected to the Cambridge Conversazione Society between 1820 and 1914. It examines the way in which the Apostles recruited their membership, the Society's discussions and its intellectual preoccupations. From its pages emerge such figures as F. D. Maurice, John Sterling, John Mitchell Kemble, Richard Trench, Fenton Hort, James Clerk Maxwell, Henry Sidgwick, Lytton Strachey, E. M. Forster, and John Maynard Keynes. The careers of these and many other leading Apostles are traced, through parliament, government, letters, and in public school and university reform. The book also makes an important contribution in discussing the role of liberalism, imagination and friendship at the intersection of the life of learning and public life. This is a major contribution to the intellectual and social history of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and to the history of the University of Cambridge. It demonstrates in impressive depth just how and why the Apostles forged original themes in modern intellectual life. Seller Inventory # APC9780521572132
