"By introducing these writers of strong conviction, the editors . . . expand literary and intellectual history and scholarship significantly. Highly recommended."--Library Journal
"A well-conceived and amply documented book."--Choice
"Offers us all a chance to become acquainted with some eccentric, secretive, obsessed, unconventional, uncompromising, maddening, inspiring foremothers who tried in different ways to change the world, and whose main failing was, perhaps, that they were ahead of their time."--Women's Review of Books
"Hurrah for Angela Ingram and Daphne Patai! History is back for good in literary studies, and this splendid collection is one of the finest examples of New Intellectual History in practice. The authors revive a fascinating set of writers and make a major case for feminist and socialist cultural studies."--Jane Marcus, Graduate School and University Center of the City University of New York
