Starting with an unusual, ‘revivalist' phase in the history of socialism in the late 1880s and early 1890s, this book goes on to explore the distinctive character of socialism in English history more widely understood. The book characterises ‘the three socialisms': associationism, statism and collectivism, establishing their presence in the social history of socialism in Britain and elsewhere.
