Abstract:

This volume is the fourth of a four-volume collection that presents the diaries of English sociologist, economist, socialist and social reformer Beatrice Webb (1858-1943). In her diary Beatrice expressed her desire to write fully and creatively about her life and she kept her diary from 1873 until her death in 1943. In the diary Beatrice records the activities of her daily life, interactions with friends and family, and her most private thoughts and fears. The fourth (and last) volume of Beatrice Webb's diary is a detailed chronicle of the Webbs' influential lives between the two World Wars, laced with more of Webb's delightfully shrewd portraits of political, literary, and intellectual luminaries. It is also a rare insider's account of the working of the Labour government. The diary runs to within a few days of Beatrice's death in 1943, a time of triumph in her lifelong commitment to social and political change. While Sidney sits on the Labour Cabinets of 1924 and 1929, Beatrice retires to the country to rework her early diaries and produce her classic memoir, My Apprenticeship.
