A fascinating history of ethical socialism, which gives credit to Ada Salter for all she achieved. My only criticism is that he cites Fenner Brockway extensively, but frequently states that his interpretation is wrong. This became a bit tedious after a while. Taylor approaches the subject as an historian, using careful research. Brockway, a journalist by trade, approached the topic through anecdote and personal reflection, but it seems that Taylor is happy to quote him when it suits. That said the book is well written and held my interest to the end.
