This chapter discusses the origins and influence of the Guild Socialism, a movement that developed its form of libertarian socialism. It also presents a brief background of William Morris's socialist thought and political activity. Morris was a poet, designer and craftsman, who was also an influential libertarian communist within the British working class. He was once a member of the Socialist League, but he withdrew in 1890 because of his disagreements with those individuals who had strong anarchist opinions. The chapter also discusses the emergence of syndicalism in Britain.
