Product description

Review

"[An] excellent edited collection . . . The volume has an impressive thematic, chronological, and theoretical coherence. . . . The Collection makes important contributions not simply to our understanding of British history but to our appreciation of British politics."--British Politics Group Newsletter

"Scholars and students are well served by this carefully researched and well-written work."--History: Reviews of New Books

"This is an important attempt to extend the history of women beyond conventional and heroic success stories. In place of the progressive march towards suffrage and feminism, the authors invoke a broader and more sophisticated context by examining the meaning of 'politics'. To do that, the authors follow three trends: the relation between power and privilege, the shifting boundaries between public and private spheres, and the meaning of female citizenship."--Reba Soffer, California State University "Northridge "
