Pamphlet Review: Facts for Socialists

The Fabian Society have just published the 14th edition, revised and enlarged, of “Facts for Socialists” (46 pages, 6d.). It contains the usual valuable collection of figures as to the unequal distribution of incomes and property, together with information about the extent of malnutrition, the volume of pauperism and unemployment, the condition of the depressed areas, overcrowding, industrial accidents, hours of work, strikes, trade union membership, etc. It is marred by the usual Fabian misconceptions about the nature of Socialism, but its facts and figures make it a first-rate aid to propagandists.
