Some brief overview of this book

Leslie Stephen left Cambridge for the seat of Empire in the mid-1860s, resolved to sell his pen as a Higher Journalist and participate in the Radical clubs then proliferating in London to promote reform. We accompany Stephen on a walk through London in order to see for ourselves how social networks, public performances and an individual's "clubbability" shaped the nature a Leslie Stephen left Cambridge for the seat of Empire in the mid-1860s, resolved to sell his pen as a Higher Journalist and participate in the Radical clubs then proliferating in London to promote reform. We accompany Stephen on a walk through London in order to see for ourselves how social networks, public performances and an individual's "clubbability" shaped the nature and fortunes of the ideas that the Radicals were seeking to advance on the printed page.

Treating Stephen as an eyewitness, we literally retrace his steps to see how social interactions within the Radical habitats determined the rhetoric, strong positions and success or failure of these publications. A walk through these intellectual production sites induces a much needed shift in historiographical focus, away from the universities and established quarterlies towards the London Clubs and Higher Journalist organs. The essay focuses especially on those Radicals who took an interest in political economy and, indeed, our perambulatory exercise explains, amongst other things, W.

S. Jevon's claim that a "noxious influence of authority" pervaded the overlapping Radical and political economy circles.
