Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mary Wollstonecrafts visionary treatise, originally published in 1792, was the first book to present womens rights as an issue of universal human rights. Ideal for coursework and classroom study, this comprehensive edition of Wollstonecrafts heartfelt feminist argument includes illuminating essays by leading scholars that highlight the authors significant contributions to modern political philosophy, making a powerful case for her as one of the most substantive political thinkers of the Enlightenment era. No other scholarly work to date has examined as closely both the ideological moorings and the enduring legacy of Wollstonecrafts groundbreaking and courageous discourse.
