"In 1895 the Fabian and feminist writer Emma Brooke published her novel Transition in which the heroine must choose between two political ideals – that of the dashing, foreign anarchist and the "gas and water socialist" Philip Sherridan, closely based on Sidney Webb. Her choice of the anarchist is one she later regrets but her pen portrait of Philip (Sidney Webb) is an antidote to the common image of Sidney as a dull and grey man of facts rather than inspiration." - introductory paragraph.
