This is a fascinating, well-researched and well-written book which shows how the suffragette movement fits into the wider world of immigration, and how that fitted into the trade union movement and rise of the labour movement.
It does a really good job of getting across the passionate nature of many of the protagonists. And how good they were at getting their message out to the people of east London.
How the Great War fits into the story was interesting. How the closure of factories and the conscription of men had such a dramatic affect on the east London. And the passages about shell-shock and the desertions of soldiers made me cry.
I was going to lend my copy to a friend but now will buy them their own copy.
