A new edition of an influential biography of the early Victorian socialist feminist writer Flora Tristan.

Active in the 1830s and 1840s, Flora Tristan is best known for her book "Workers' Union," an account of the conditions of women and workers in Peru, London, Paris and the provinces of France. Regarded as something of a pariah, she was one of the first women radicals to draw clear connections between the plight of disaffected workers and powerless women. Her version of socialism has been regarded as leading towards Marx. Sandra Dijkstra aims to paint a clear picture of Tristan as a class- and gender-conscious women writer in a transitional historical period, and to demonstrate her influence on Marxism.
