Product description


Exhaustively researched and resonant in detail. It is a splendid reassessment of a man who was both typical of his own time and light years ahead of it. --Fiona MacCarthy, Guardian

Indispensable... A lively, readable, and balanced account of the gender wars of one messy century. -- The Times 'One of the best political biographies for many years. It is not just a book about the past; it's bursting with ideas that remain relevant to the future of humanity.' --Peter Tatchell, Observer Books of the Year

Sheila Rowbotham has given us not just an account of one remarkable individual's life, but has helped to explain how we evolved into the society we are today. --Martin Pugh, Times Literary Supplement
