Journalism Contributions to Commonweal 1885-1890

WAS £12.99 £6.49

Product description

William Morris founded "Commonweal" in 1885 as "The Official Journal of the Socialist League". Its declared aim was to promote "the principles of Revolutionary International Socialism". The paper established itself as a leading socialist journal of the period and included articles by Friedrich Engels, Eleanor Marx and George Bernard Shaw. Morris contributed a regular "News" column to the paper in which he analyzed contemporary events from a Marxist perspective. These articles form the basis of this volume. The publication of this collection - along with the "Political Writings" volume from the William Morris Library: series 1 - means that all Morris's work from "Justice" and "Commonweal" are now available.

Condition: Cover shelfworn, some marks on foreedge, old price stickers on back. Pages clean and clear and binding tight.
