16 editions published between 1982 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The year is 1814. The Allies have driven Napoleon's once-mighty armies back to Paris. Trapped, forced to abdicate after two decades of triumphant rule, the Emperor takes leave of his comrades-in-arms and sets sail for his new domain - the tiny, poverty-stricken, pestilential island of Elba. Yet within ten months Napoleon will enter Paris once again, at the heels of the fleeing Bourbon king, flushed with victory and cheered by the masses. The Escape From Elba tells the heroic story of Napoleon's exile and phoenix-like return. In this classic account, now republished in paperback, Norman MacKenz

The Fabian Society favoured gradual change rather than revolutionary change in 1884 and laid the groundwork for the Labour Party in Britain. The first Fabians exhibited missionary zeal and passionate enthusiasm in the cause of social justice and reforming Britain's imperialist foreign policy. The Fabians lobbied for the introduction of a minimum wage in 1906, for the creation of a universal health care system in 1911 and for the abolition of hereditary peerages in 1917

The first Fabians by Norman MacKenzie( Book )

17 editions published between 1977 and 1984 in 3 languages and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first Fabians", said George Bernard Shaw, "were missionaries among the savages who spent their lives trying to convert the British to socialism". That mission carried them from obscurity to fame in the years between 1884 and 1914. The authors weave the hopes and struggles of this talented group into the background of their troubled times. It is a controversial portrait that brings out the weaknesses as well as the achievements of the Fabian set
"The wheel of life," 1924-1943 by Beatrice Webb( Book )

18 editions published in 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

15 editions published between 1958 and 1959 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"All the good things of life," 1892-1905 by Beatrice Webb( Book )

6 editions published between 1905 and 1983 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the second 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. Webb is at the peak of her powers in this second volume of her diary. She is content with "the ideal life" and her partnership with Sidney, and devotes herself to their grand foundation of the London School of Economics, the writing of incisive studies of trade unionism and local government, and plans for the creation of modem schools and universities. All of these accomplishments are in sharp relief to the political stresses caused by the Boer War and the collapse of Gladstonian Liberalism. Only the rise of the Labour movement seemed in stride with the Webbs' leaps of fortune. Even more than before, Webb's circle glitters with the makers of Edwardian society. Mistress of the salon, she dines with Asquith, talks politics with Winston Churchill, debates philosophy with Bertrand Russell, visits Balfour and Lloyd George, becomes an intimate friend of Bernard Shaw, and quarrels with H.G. Wells
