Product description


`Alberti utilizes Rathbone's life and work to elucidate major historical debates concerning conflicting notions of feminism, British feminist involvement in maintaining colonial hegemony, and the relationship between women and patriotism' - Journal of Women's History

`Alberti's closing sentence is worth quoting: "As we move into the future, her tireless determination and her faith in the contribution which women can make to society are a welcome antidote to the discourses of cynicism and despair". I can't argue with that. Bravo to Eleanor Rathbone and to the accomplished interpreter of her ideas, Johanna Alberti!' - Women's Philosophy Review


"Eleanor Rathbone" is the first book in the series "Women of Ideas". This, and succeeding volumes will: provide succinct introductions to the ideas of women who have been recognized as major theorists; make the work of major women of ideas accessible to students and those who wish to know more; appraise and reappraise the work of neglected women of ideas and give them a higher profile; and provide a full bibliography of its subject's writings, where they are easily available.
