Overview

This book is a fascinating biography of Eileen Power, a major British historian who once ranked in fame alongside Tawney, Trevelyan and Toynbee. Using letters, diaries and reminiscences, Maxine Berg recreates the life of this charismatic personality, describing, for the first time, Power's remarkable intellectual and scholarly achievements at a time when she was acting very much outside the female role. Power's ability, coupled with her vivid personality, made her history compelling reading and listening to a generation of students.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Readers who are interested in women in the historical profession, in the emergence of economic history as an important field of study, or in the history of higher education in the UK should find this book of value." Choice

"This is a fine biography of Eileen Power....Berg's book is extremely valuable as a model of analysis of the world of academic scholarship and it is also a lively, engrossing biography of an important figure. It should help to stimulate more research not only on Power herself, but on women academics, feminism and gender in the interwar period. Deborah Gorham, Canadian Journal of History

"With this superb biographical study of Eileen Power, Maxine Berg, herself a well-known British economic and intellectual historian, has a filled a major gap in the historiography of British economic history....Fututr studies...should use Berg's study as a model, for she has not only rescued Eileen Power's legacy but has given us the best study of a historian of the period." Gerald M. Koot, Albion

"Maxine Berg has composed a lively and readable biography of Eileen Power..." Susan Mosher Stuard, Journal of Economic History

"...graciously calling to memory the life and work of Eileen Power, Berg gives us a biography that is absorbing as social commentary..." Elaine Clark, Jrnl of Modern History

"Berg has left us with a rich biography of someone one would like to have known and wish had lived longer. Power's glamour, fun, and intellectual brilliance make for wonderful reading, and we should be grateful to Berg for providing a balanced biography." Barbara A. Hanawalt, Speculum
