Abstract

Ellen Wilkinson was a key radical figure in the 20th century British socialist and feminist movement, a woman of passionate energy who was involved in most of the major struggles of her time. In this lively and engaging biography, Paula Bartley looks to chart the political life of this extraordinary campaigner who went from street agitator to government minister whilst keeping her principles intact. This book is clear, concise, and lively, and provides an interesting introductory insight into one of the lesser-known figures of the Labour Left, writes Gordon Bannerman.
