In this pioneering and wide-ranging reassessment of early socialist ideas and reforming strategies, Pamela Pilbeam reveals a remarkable period of intellectual creativity and achievement wholly distinct from the post-1870 movement that has invariably formed the starting point for most histories of socialism. The book pulls together and identifies the major issues that preoccupied the early socialists: revolution, religion, education, the status of women, association and work and outlines how socialist ideas developed from a morality-based plural socialism of men and women that sought to smooth away class conflict to a materialist, internationalist socialism that used the rhetoric of revolution and class war.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"a well-written, well-researched textbook - provides a clear introduction to a set of key political and social themes. A valuable introduction to an unjustly ignored moment in the history of left-wing political culture." - French History " - will certainly prove useful to students and scholars alike. Pilbeam's refreshingly readable synthesis offers a timely point of access to innovative recent work on such themes as socialist feminism and the relationship between socialism and religion. A welcome overview of the subject." - History "An important addition to the scholarship on this period." - Journal for the Society of Utopian Studies
