Hypothesis: Shaw's influence was greatest in his contribution to Fabianism, and least in his pronouncements on foreign affairs. Shaw's ideas on foreign policy were grounded in his socialism, and his sympathy for totalitarian movements which diminished his influence on liberals, was dictated by belief that dictatorship was a short-cut to socialism. Conclusion: Shaw's socialism remained constant even when his liberalism wavered. In spite of his criticism of democracy, and his admiration for strong leadership, Shaw's Fabianism was essential to his thought, and his return to liberalism was inevitable. [TRUNCATED]
