Lady Cholmondeley got more than she bargained for when she asked for "a few of your ideas of socialism". George Bernard Shaw's sister-in-law expected a brief summary, a simple user's manual on his political and ethical beliefs. Instead, in 1928 she was presented with a great tome that encompasses the meaning of life and just about everything from marriage and bringing up children to how to run an industry.

George Bernard Shaw was born July 26, 1856, in Dublin, Ireland; attended Wesleyan Connexional School; he started his writing career ca. 1876 and went on to become a playwright, wit, and critic; known as an advocate of social reform, he co-founded the Fabian Society (1884); vestryman and borough councilor in London in the late 1880s; Nobel Prize for literature, 1925; among his plays are: Heartbreak house (1920), Man and superman (1905), Back to Methuselah (1922), and Saint Joan (1923); his plays adapted to film include Pygmalion (1938) and Caesar and Cleopatra (1946); books include The intelligent woman's guide to socialism and capitalism (1928) and Everybody's political what's what (1944); he died November 2, 1950.
