Summary
'his undoubted masterpiece...a remarkable feat of detailed research and objective judgement.' - The Times 'Harrison's writing is masterly, without being heavy, his comment is always profound and often very witty.' - The Spokesman 'A fine biography of two socialist stars and what passes for a history of socialism...it is worth every penny...his foray into biography is also a resounding success...' - Paul Foot, The Guardian online 'Harrison's The Life and Times is a fine book, a notable addition to the riches of our socialist library. Its powerful message shows how partners can act together and how, indeed, they will be needed to save our stricken world.' - New Statesman 'A terrific book...' - Professor Eric Hobsbawm 'It places in the shade all other scholarship on the Webbs...' - Richard A. Rempel, Russell: The Journal of Bertrand Russell Studies

Summary expansion
Sidney and Beatrice Webb are the most important British contributors to the socialist tradition. They had a hand in founding many of the institutions that form the fabric of British society; notably the Fabian society, the Labour Party, the London School of Economics, the New Statesman, the Political Quarterly and Tribune. This is the first authorized biography of the Webbs commissioned by the Passfield Trustees; this life of the 'oddest couple since Adam and Eve' differs from previous studies in considering their literary and institution-building accomplishments and not just their personal idiosyncrasies
