Fabian Society and Young Fabians

The Young Fabians

The Young Fabians were founded in 1960 as the under-31's section of the Fabian Society. Their first pamphlet, published in 1961, was Lady Albemarle’s Boys, a critique by Ray Gosling of the Albermarle Report on youth services drawing on his own experiences running a youth club in Leicester.

This resource contains Young Fabian Pamphlets 1 to 56, dating from 1961-2000. Subjects covered include: economic policy; education; foreign policy; government and politics; and social policy.
