Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'Mary Wollstonecraft is remembered principally as the author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), and there has been a tendency to view her most famous work in isolation. Yet Wollstonecraft\'s pronouncements about women grew out of her reflections on men, and her views on the female sex constituted an integral part of a wider moral and political critique of her times that she first fully formulated in A Vindication of the Rights of Men (1790). This fully annotated edition brings these two works together.'

Synopsis:

An edition of two of Wollstonecraft's texts, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792) and A Vindication of the Rights of Men.
