Major Barbara has become a member of the Salvation Army, with all the good intentions of those who've preceded her. Unfortunately, as the novel progresses, we see that the Salation Army does not live up to its reputation as a humane and charitable religious institution, but rather, serves as a beacon of hypocrisy.

The Fabian Society was a politcal group, whose main goal was to gradually transform Britain into a socialist state. Shaw was an active member of this group.
