The following list of books has been compiled for the use of members of the Fabian Society and other students of social questions. It makes no pretension to complete

No work has been included which cannot be obtained in English, and few that do not deal almost exclusively with English problems. It has been impossible to find space even for representative specimens of those local records and reports which must be the chief sources of any thorough and original study of social history. With few exceptions periodical publications have been excluded ; nor have individual articles in magazines been mentioned, although much of the best results of modern controversy and enquiry is only to be read in that form.

Different standards have been adopted in the selection of books for different parts of the list. For instance, only a few of the best books on early and mediæval social history are given ; while, on the other hand, an attempt has been made to include every book of any importance which has been issued as part of the Socialist propaganda during the last seven or eight years.

The list, even as it stands, is so long that a few years ago it would have been useful only to rich men or professional students; but the great development of public libraries has made it possible for a large number of readers to obtain access to the best works on any subject; and it is probable that more now suffer from want of information as to which are the best books, than from inability to obtain them.

As yet, however, few public libraries are sufficiently well equipped to contain all the books here mentioned ; and all who desire to promote serious enquiry into social subjects are strongly urged to cause any libraries over which they may have influence to obtain as many of them as possible.

For modern books, much the best and handiest general subject catalogue is W. S. Sonnenschein's “ Best Books” (Sonnenschein ; 1891. 31/6 net). For obscure and

out of print” books, tracts, etc., the subject catalogue of the Boston Athenæum, 1882, 25 dols., is useful. Watts' “ Bibliotheca Britannica,” o.p., gives English books published before 1824, under subjects and under authors. Many articles in the

Encyclopædia Britannica” have short but well-chosen bibliographies appended to them; the “Dictionary of National Biography” will also be found useful.

Every paper printed in any important magazine, from the beginning of the century to 1882, will be found catalogued under its subject, in Poole's “Index to Periodical Literature” (Kegan Paul; 1883. 76/-). The Supplement (Kegan Paul; 1886. 36/-) covers the years 1882-87. Since then the work has been carried on by the American Library Association (W. L. Fletcher, editor), and appears annually (Kegan Paul; 36/per annum). The method of reference, which is rather complicated, is explained in the introduction. The“ Index and Guide to Periodicals,” published annually, gives in each issue a complete index to contents of periodicals of the previous year, and an exhaustive list of the magazines and reviews of the world, including names of editors, addresses and prices. Vol. 1 (28.) 1890, vol. II (55.) 1891, and vol. iii in the Press, 1893, Review of Reviews' Office, Mowbray House, Temple. The only subject catalogue of Newspaper Articles is Palmer's “ Index to the Times (Palmer's . Private Press, Shepperton-on-Thames ; 50 vols.).

The names of a few books are printed in black type. These are chosen, not as the best, nor even as authoritative works on the subjects of which they treat, but as being likely to serve as easy introductory handbooks to those who are studying such subjects for the first time.

When the list of books in any section is at all long, a further list of a few books has been suggested as a "course” of reading. In such cases, if only one by an author is included in the section, the name of the author is given as sufficient reference. If more than one book by the author is included, or if a book recommended as part of the

occurs in any other section, the name of the book as well as of the author is given.

The abbreviation “0.p.”. = out of print. Dates within round brackets first publication. Dates within square brackets period treated of. Dates without braekets = date of edition recommended.
