First edition of “the world’s most important book since the Bible” (Ramsay MacDonald). Octavo, original cloth. In near fine condition.

First published in 1928 and addressed to the The Intelligent Woman (specifically his sister-in-law, Lady Mary Stewart Cholomondely), George Bernard Shaw's Guide to Socialism and Capitalism should be read by every American in the twenty-first century who has benefited, or ever will benefit, from Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, the Affordable Care Act, disability, unemployment, food stamps, or any of the government's social insurance programs. The inequities of capitalism as an economic system are nothing new, and Shaw was one of the early champions of socialist reforms to protect the working class against the advantages capitalism gives those who control the means of production.
