The ten essays in this collection examine the many diverse ways in which women have achieved public status and political power in England from the mid-18th century to the present. Topics include women and political patronage in 18th-century England; aristocratic women and electoral politics; British women and radical politics in the late Nonconformist Enlightenment; John Stuart Mill, liberal politics and women's suffrage; the suffragettes and the politics of disruption in Edwardian England; the issue of pro-suffrage men; and the limits and possibilities of women's citizenship both before and after winning the vote. The contributors include nine specialists from Britain and one from the U.S. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
