Editorial Reviews

Booknews
As though Morris (1834-96) were not renowned enough in such spheres as the history of art and design, literary criticism, and the history of socialism and socialist thought, scholars of history and business history now reveal him as a distinguished and highly original man of business. In ten essays, some previously published in scholarly journals, explore his biographers, origins of the family fortune, his business career, his Iceland experience, the ethical foundations of his company, the making of an earthly paradise, and other dimensions. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
