First published in 1907, this was the first substantial biography of Owen and his theories as well as actual practice of Socialist ideals and institutions. The author had the benefit of newly discovered Owen correspondence numbering some 3000 letters. A definitive biography of the 19th century English socialist and reformer. Especially noteworthy for its depiction of the communal life in the communities he founded in Indiana and in England in the early 19th century. This two-volume work places in proper perspective Owen's vast contributions to the theories of social reform and their implementation. This title is cited and recommended by the Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature.
