Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Diamond, a history scholar (affiliation not noted), provides an account of Maria Rye, an English Victorian liberal feminist whose agitation on behalf of orphaned children and poor women gradually developed into a more conservative and imperialistic approach as she created a living for herself promoting the emigration of women and children to distant outposts to fill the colonists' need for servants.
