Description

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.
