An entertaining introduction to the great debates of the fin de siecle era, from Darwinism to Socialism. Brome describes the 'quarrels' of some of the key literary figures of the time: George Bernard Shaw, H.G. Wells, G.K. Chesterton, Hilaire Belloc and the formidable Dr. Coulton. Churchill and Henry James also put in appearances in this lucid and accessible guide to the big ideas of the age, which is as readable for its insights into the lives and characters involved as for the essentials of the arguments.
