R. H. Tawney’s Christian Idealism and Social Reform

I have recently been writing about R. H. Tawney’s ideas about topics such as religion, politics, social reform and socialism, Fascism and Communism, the threat of world war, and the human future.
These have just been sound-bites, more or less.
I am now posting here a fuller essay on Tawney’s thought in the early twentieth century. He is rated as probably the most influential Labour theorist in the last hundred years. His best known work is perhaps “Religion and The Rise of Capitalism”, which was required reading for history students when I was at University.
