This pioneering study of Bertrand Russell's social and political thought between 1896 and 1938 is the first book to undertake a thorough investigation of the intellectual and cultural context out of which Russell's ideas emerged. Maintaining a sympathetic but critical stance towards Russell's almost innumerable political postures, the author renders that thought both plausible and coherent by placing its development against a significant historical background. The result is a highly original view of an important and enduring figure.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"Ironside's analysis is presented with enviable clarity and much good humor, and offers a shrewd sense of the trajectory of Russell's multifaceted life and ever-evolving contexts...Philip Ironside has written an intelligent and lucid book of interest not merely to specialists on Russell's life and thought but also to students of public life, social theory, and political debate in modern Britain." Victorian Studies
