About this title

Synopsis:

The entries not only illuminate the career of a remarkable woman, but yield insights into the early industrial system of the 1830s and 1840s." ―Library Journal

A child of both the French and Industrial revolutions, Flora Tristan (1803-1844) became a bold social critic and political activist. Assuming personal freedoms enjoyed by few women contemporaries, she devoted herself to the cause of universal justice. Tristan traveled widely and tirelessly strived to organize French men and women workers. Several of her writings are here translated into English for the first time.

DORIS BEIK, who died in May 1988, was a librarian at Columbia University and Swarthmore College. Her work as a translator includes Madame de Staël’s Ten Years of Exile. PAUL BEIK is Centennial Professor Emeritus in the History Department at Swarthmore College. His published work includes The French Revolution Seen from the Right; Louis Philippe and the July Monarchy (with Doris Beik), and Modern Europe: A History since 1500 (with Laurence Lafore).
