From the PublisherRebellious Hearts is a lively, engaging, and cross-disciplinary survey of British women's writings on the French Revolution. Its essays are conspicuously open-minded and historically informed, and commendably tackle little-known figures, as well as the likes of Hannah More and Frances Burney.— Linda Colley, author of Britons: Forging the Nation 1707-1837
"The authors of these essays have done a fine job of working with important primary sources and the most recent secondary ones. Moreover, they have done so in a remarkably savvy way, cognizant at every step of the real, actual nature of daily life in Romantic England and of the manner in which women writers used their publications in a variety of ways to engage, comment upon, shape, and otherwise manipulate public opinion."— Stephen C. Behrendt, author of Royal Mourning and Regency Culture: Elegies and Memorials of Princess Charlotte
"Rebellious Hearts derives much of its impact from its presentation of a substantial number of women writers whose published works reflect both common concerns and authorial strategies (such as a strong epistolary trend in diverse genres) and a striking range of political opinion. I was persuaded that in ignoring this rich network of conversations, we have had a seriously diminished understanding of England's debates on the French Revolution. "— Sarah M. Zimmerman, author of Romanticism, Lyricism, and History"
