Product Description

Review

"... giving an overall account, he provides a guide to the literature on the subject, with a very impressive bibliography."The Fawcett library newsletter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

“This comprehensive summary of suffrage history in Britain is a model of clarity and concision. An essential aid for teacher, student and researcher.”

Dr Sandra Holton, Trinity College, Dublin

 

The Women’s Suffrage Movement was a phenomenon unparalleled in British history. It was the largest women’s movement the country had ever seen, and it succeeded both in gaining equal voting rights for women and in securing their right to be elected to the House of Commons.

But beneath the surface of a movement for change in franchise policy, reformers and their opponents alike were fighting a broader ideological battle that seemed to threaten the very roots of Victorian Britain.

 In this revised second edition of his widely acclaimed text, Harold L. Smith:

 

·        Traces the suffrage campaign from its origins in the 1860s through to the achievement of equal suffrage in 1928

·        Considers the wider political context of the movement

·        Provides an up-to-date synthesis of the most recent scholarship

·        Presents new evidence on the backstage collaboration between Conservative women and the NUSEC in the 1920s

 

Ultimately, Smith argues, it was not militancy but political manoeuvring that brought about equal franchise rights for women – but the larger goal of redefining gender structures was much more difficult to attain. 

 

Harold L. Smith is Professor of History at the University of Houston-Victoria, and a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society of Great Britain. His previous books include: (with Judith N. McArthur) Minnie Fisher Cunningham: A Suffragist’s Life in Politics (2003); Britain in the Second World War: A Social History (1996) and British Feminism in the Twentieth Century (1990).

Format: Paperback
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!
