In his hard-hitting and controversial book, George Watson examines the foundation texts of socialism to find out what they really say; the result is blasphemy against socialism's canon of saints. Marx and Engels publicly advocated genocide in 1849; Ruskin called himself a violent Tory and a King's man; and Shaw held the working classes in utter contempt

In this enjoyably iconoclastic book, George Watson discusses some of the great heresies of the twentieth century, and the cultural heretics who espoused them, often with surprising results. Watson provides us with examples of 'true', original heretics, from Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch, who asserted that his study of the remote past had made a radical of him, rather than any influence of modernism, to others such as Douglas Adams, whom Watson knew as an undergraduate.
Preface In this book of memories I applaud the heretics who amused and taught me. .
It was seldom easy to be a heretic in Britain in the twentieth century, and even harder to persist in it. Heresies need orthodoxies, after all, and twentieth-century Britain lacked orthodoxies in politics and literature, at least for long. In this book of memories I applaud the heretics who amused and taught me and, at the close, one I taught and amused. Memories and musings easily outrun what survives in print. The moment has come for criticism to recover the sense of certainty that laughter brings; and the profundity of the comic muse is the text and subtext of this book.
