The Life of R.H. Tawney: Socialism and History
Goldman emphasizes the singularity of Tawney (1880-1962), the leading economic historian of his generation, particularly the social and political activism that distinguished his life from that of most English history professors. Previous biographies have relied mainly on Tawney's published work, he says, but he finds that his pamphlets, articles, unpublished lectures, papers, memoranda, and letters are just as revealing a source for appreciating his thoughts. Among the topics are courtship and marriage, workers' education 1908-13, coal and reconstruction after the First World War, socialism and Christianity, London and Washington in the Second World War, and last things 1945-62.
