   schema:reviewBody ""What can the study of narratives bring to our understanding of political ideas that other forms of analysis cannot? In Narratives of British Socialism, Stephen Ingle shows how imaginative literature can be used to give definition to political thought. The origins, development and eventual decline of British socialism are analysed in the writings of Morris, Shaw, Wells, Huxley, Koestler, Orwell and others, as Ingle explores the moral case against capitalism and the relationship between socialism and the working class." "Also investigating the ideas of evolution and revolution, and utopias and dystopias, Ingle explores how writers might hope to shape political ideas. A postscript considers another narrative form, film, and analyses its descriptions of the class that supported socialism."--Jacket." ;
