Notes, select bibliography, index. "When Ellen Terry wrote to Shaw, 'Aren't you funny, preaching against marriage and marrying? Against other things and doing 'em', her accusation could have been levelled against many of the men in Shaw's circle of New Thinkers, Fabians and social revolutionaries. [This book] examines that gulf between principle and practice in the lives and, more particularly, in the marriages and sexual relationships of this extraordinary group of men and women, which included Havelock Ellis, Olive Schreiner, Eleanor Marx, Edward Aveling, Sidney and Beatrice Webb, H.G. Wells and Margaret Sanger."
