9780198226680: Women, Marriage, and Politics, 1860-1914

Although women are often seen as "hidden from history," this book finally unveils the personal experiences of wives, mothers, and sisters in more than fifty British political families in Victorian and Edwardian England. Drawing on rich new evidence from women's correspondence and diaries between 1860 and 1914, Pat Jalland examines the experience of courtship, marriage, and childbirth and analyzes the vital domestic and political functions they performed. With its intimate approach to women's lives, this book is a welcome complement to the better-known public history of women and the women's movement.

About the Author:

Pat Jalland is Visiting Fellow in History at the Australina National University, Canberra.

Review:

"the best and most unbiased kind of women's history ... careful scholarship with the readability of novels"

--The Times Literary Supplement

"Jalland's book strikingly illustrates the way break-through in research can result from suddenly perceiving significance in material that others have lightly discarded ... The outcome is a historical sociology without jargon and its lumps of undigested statistics, a social anthropology
without vague speculation, and a women's history that rests secure on a close and sensitive study of the interaction between the sexes. This is one of the best books on women's history to be published for years."

--The London Review of Books

"based on a close study of more than 50 British family archives ... Jalland's interest in the private dimension has uncovered an invaluable record of elite women's - and men's - private experience, which students will draw on for years to come ... If the book raises more questions than it
answers, that is a product of its immense research and fascinating content, which should stimulate further exploration of the wealth of material uncovered by Pat Jalland."

--Historical Studies

"crammed with information which will force us to rethink many of our long-held assumptions"

--Philippa Levine, Australian Feminist Studies

"The history of women in society receives a boost from this enthralling book"

--Philippa Toomey, The Tablet
