Begun in 1924, the year of the British Labour Party’s first period of office under Ramsay MacDonald (who hailed it as the world’s most important book since the Bible) and first published in 1928, ‘The Intelligent Woman’s Guide’ draws on Shaw’s decades of activism and remains a brilliant, thought-provoking classic of political propaganda.
