The Critical Shaw - On Politics

£14.99

Product description

A comprehensive selection of renowned Irish playwright and Nobel Laureate Bernard Shaw's opinions on a wide range of political movements, ideologies, and events that helped shape the international landscape of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. With unwavering conviction, and in many cases openly courting controversy and calumny, Shaw championed Socialism in its formative years, berated America's embrace of Capitalism, praised Russian Communism, lauded Stalin, rejected the notion that Hitler was responsible for the Second World War, and scorned Democracy.
The Critical Shaw series brings together, in five volumes and from a wide range of sources, selections from Bernard Shaw's writings on topics that exercised him for the whole of his professional career: Literature, Music, Politics, Religion, and Theatre. The volumes are edited by leading Shaw scholars, and all include an introduction, a chronology of Shaw's life and works, annotated texts, and a bibliography. The series editor is L.W. Conolly, literary adviser to the Shaw Estate and former president of the International Shaw Society.
