dc.description.abstract The editors of Time and Tide and The Bermondsey Book did not, , intend to set up alternative subcultures so much as intervene in the free exchange of ideas that constituted what Habermas terms ‘a critically debating public’. Their visions of social democracy spanned differences in gender, race, nation and class but were averse to forms of mass culture that stifled intellectual rigour. Thus, while they conform to Habermas’s distinction between popular culture and a literary intelligentsia, they complicate the contingent polarisation between the voices of democracy and a cultural elite in their intention to establish a democratic book-reading public that was available to intelligent members of any class or sex. en
