New Fabian Essays
By R. H. S. Crossman
Praeger, 1952, 215 pp

An effort, by a group of Labor Party intellectuals, to rethink Socialist theory in the light of mid-twentieth century problems. While the essay lacks the challenge and driving force of the original Fabian essays, the mood of self-examination is certainly appropriate to the present condition of British Socialism. Of particular interest is Denis Healey's essay on the problem of foreign policy--a subject comfortably neglected by the earlier generation of Fabians.
