Select Bibliography


As with his earlier life of Hartington, Jackson's biography is a welcome and most useful addition to our understanding of a significant political figure, whose legislative legacy is still very much around us./Allen Warren/EHR February 1999, vol.CXIV No 455.
`provides a welcome synthesis of a generation of scholarship on feminism as political movement and ideology ... her account highlights a wide variety of individuals, movements, and texts ... for those unfamiliar with the vast literature on English feminism, this is a smart and helpful guide ... Caine's analysis is most innovative where she fills persistent lacunae in historians' accounts of feminism'
Laura E. Nym Mayhall, The Catholic University of America, Twentieth Century British History, vol 10, no 2 1999
