Review

"... giving an overall account, he provides a guide to the literature on the subject, with a very impressive bibliography."The Fawcett library newsletter

From the Back Cover

SEMINAR STUDIES IN HISTORY
General Editors- Clive Emsley & Gordon Martel
"Seminar Studies in History...provide a means of bridging the gap between specialist articles and monographs and textbooks. They are written by acknowledged experts on the subject who are not only familiar with current thinking but have often contributed to it. Their format, well-tried and effective, combines information, analysis and assessment effectively. The selections of documents, included from the outset of the series when document work was hardly in vogue in schools, not merely illustrates points made in the text but provides an effective medium for discussion on the issues raised. The further reading guide has stimulated countless students to take their interests further. The structure of the series may not have changed through time but the format has, with attractive four-colour covers and larger pages....Seminar Studies are still, despite all the opposition, a market leader."
Teaching History
__________________________________________________________________________
This new Seminar Study is the first book to trace the British women’s suffrage campaign from its origins in the 1860s through to the achievement of equal suffrage in 1928. Unlike most studies the author pays equal attention to the period after 1914 when suffrage legislation was actually obtained. It is not just an up-to-date synthesis of the most recent scholarship (much of which is to be found in only scholarly, specialist journals) but it also provides new material on the 1920s suffrage campaign, based on the author’s own research. Accessible and engaging - the book is sure to be widely welcomed.
Professor Smith focuses on the actions of reformers and their opponents, with due attention paid to the campaigns in Scotland and Wales as well as the movements in England. Within a chronological framework he explores why women’s suffrage was such a contentious issue, and how women gained the vote despite opponents’ fears that it would undermine gender boundaries (thus the suffrage campaign is firmly placed in the context of gender conflicts developing during this period). The campaign is not treated in isolation- not only is it viewed as part of the emerging women’s movement but it is also integrated into the wider political picture. Thus the book sheds light on related issues, such as the reasons for the Liberal Party’s decline and the Conservative Party’s unexpected electoral success in the interwar years.
The main text is supplemented by a fascinating array of primary documents (many of which illustrate contemporaries’ ideas on women’s suffrage), a chronology of events, a glossary of the main characters and organisations, as well as a comprehensive bibliography.

I ordered this during my final year at Cambridge studying History. It proved to be a comprehensive and detailed textbook which was easy to read and well presented. At the time it was one of many, but I was grateful for the insights it provided.

I am a mature post grad student, and I have never come across a book as informative as this. It gives me leads for my research, and sets out information in a succinct way. Thank you Professor Smith

Format: Paperback
The book provides an study of the Women's Suffrage Campaign, which is useful for studying the above topic. However, even though the information provide is useful it is sometimes hard to follow as the order of the book is not chronological but instead by topic. As an historical reference it is good for providing fairly in-depth information. Yet is not that detailed for all readers.

Completely boring 16 May 2014
By Lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Harold manages to turn an interesting subject into 192 pgs of pure boredom. His book jumps from movement to movement within a few sentences, has no structure whatsoever, numerous errors, and on top of that he manages to add completely unnecessary information. I would not recommend this book to anyone seeking a good text about this time in history. Please I beg you save your Money!
