The Fabian Society is a group of British thinkers and scholars formed in the 1880s. The group still exists, and they are interested in advancing the principles of social democracy. The organization first started publishing their tracts and pamphlets in 1884, and their very first title was "Why are the many poor?" The London School of Economics and Political Science recently digitized many of these tracts, and placed them online on this site. Some of the authors included here are Clement Attlee, Tony Blair, Robin Cook, Chris Smith, and Harold Wilson. The topics covered here are quite broad, and visitors will find documents on women's issues, socialism, local government, and industrial relations. Visitors can view lists of the tracts organized by decade, or they can also look at the examples offered on the site's homepage.
