Flag as Inappropriate. Webb and Potter were members of the Labour Party and took an active role in politics. The Webbs were supporters of the Soviet Union until their deaths. Their books, Soviet Communism: A New Civilization? (1935) and The Truth About Soviet Russia (1942) give a very positive assessment of Joseph Stalin's regime.

In 1911-12 Sidney and Beatrice Webb undertook an extended tour of the Far East in the course of which they kept a diary recording their impressions as the ancient civilizations of Japan, China and India, each in their separate ways, came to terms with the modern world. This document is a valuable addition to early 20th century travel literature. It also bears on the Webb's continuing intellectual pilgrimage at a critical juncture in their lives and in Asian and European history.
