James Brewer Stewart"Mary Livermore was a very important historical figure, and one about whom we have forgotten all too much. She played absolutely essential leadership roles in post-Civil War feminism and other reforms, developed a compelling personal ideology of ‘female reform,’ and became a powerful figure in genteel popular culture. Wendy Hamand Venet speaks enlighteningly to all these crucial aspects of Livermore’s public life, and she is equally effective in rendering her subject’s private life. Only excellent biographies do this well, and this book meets that standard."
