This new six-volume collection from Routledge and Edition Synapse brings together key documents from the Victorian feminist campaign to establish and improve girls' and women's education. The set is divided into two sections, both of which incorporate materials that argue for the improvement of girls' and women's education as well as arguments made against education for girls and women. The first section focuses on the debate surrounding the quality of women's education and the question of access to higher education for women. This section also brings together documents from the feminist campaign with writing from the established press on the question of women's higher education, and writings from the Social Sciences Association where many education reformers aired their views. The second section concentrates on the strengths and successes of Victorian women as educators, and highlights some of the most influential women in the field of education during this era. Drawing widely on articles from the feminist and established press, government papers, newspapers, professional and association journals, as well as memoirs, addresses, pamphlets, and reviews, this essential collection gives researchers excellent and comprehensive access to nineteenth-century debates on improving girls' and women's education, and women's work as educators.

Pardon me; I must seem to you so stupid! Why is the property of the woman who commits Murder, and the property of the woman who commits Matrimony, dealt with alike by your law?" So ends the "little allegory" in conversational form with which Frances Power Cobbe opens the 1868 essay that gives this collection its title. Cobbe was a widely read essayist of remarkable lucidity and power; her pieces display incisive wit and remarkable focus as she returns repeatedly to "the woman question," but it was typical of the time that when Cobbe died she was described in the Wellesley Index to Victorian periodicals as a "miscellaneous writer." Cobbe was not alone; as much as 15 per cent of the essays in Victorian periodicals were written by women, yet even the best of these pieces were allowed by the male-dominated world of scholarship to disappear from print. This anthology makes available again some of the best Victorian writing by women. The second edition has been revised and updated; additions include a chronology and an essay by Frances Power Cobbe on the education of women.

Hit Woman is the story of Susan Hamilton s wildly improbable life: from early days as a child prodigy and actor, through heady success on the concert stage, in the boardrooms of Madison Ave. and over the talkback microphones of recording studios all over the world. This personal and most intimate tale is spun in a voice that is fresh, funnier than hell, and always unflinchingly candid even in the face of heartbreaking tragedy and more than one wrenching life/love setback.

The story covers a broad swath of the musical landscape: lessons from the teenage Maestro James Levine in Aspen; encounters with Mitch Leigh (Man of La Mancha) in his penthouse at the Warwick Hotel; Sir Elton John in the bowels of Madison Square Garden; Chuck Berry at his St. Louis studio (a hostage situation develops); a wild night on the L.A. club scene with Glenn Frey, falling in love with Nashville and its 'bad boys;' and a poignant session with Marvin Gaye in London as well as the UFO's, alligators, cultists, monkeys and witches that provide an ever-changing backdrop to a story that never loses momentum

Also included: 11 pages of behind-the-scenes photos and a complete index to the 400+ pages.

Drawing on the history of English feminism and the study of Victorian periodical and newspaper presses, this important and timely new book asks a key question that neither history nor literary studies has yet addressed: what did it mean to have a Victorian feminist write for an established newspaper or periodical? Using the example of Frances Power Cobbe (one of a handful of women to make a steady living for the mid-nineteenth century established press), Susan Hamilton opens up our understanding of Victorian feminism and its political workings, and urges us to reconsider what feminism looked like in the nineteenth-century.

"Nineteenth Century British Women's Education" brings together key documents in the Victorian feminist campaign to establish and improve girls' and women's education. Drawing widely on articles from the feminist and established press, government papers, newspapers, professional and association journals, as well as memoirs, addresses, pamphlets and reviews, this collection gives researchers access to nineteenth-century debates on improving girls' and women's education and women's work as educators. The collection is divided overall into two sections, both of which incorporate materials that argue for the improvement of girls' and women's education as well as arguments made against education for girls and women. In examining the campaign to establish higher education for women, the first volumes include the writings of such primary figures as Emily Davies, Lydia Becker, Barbara Bodichon, Jessie Boucherett, Josephine Butler, Frances Power Cobbe, Millicent Garrett Fawcett, Maria Grey and Emily Shirreff in addition to illustrating the significance of institutions such as Girton and Newnham Colleges. Later volumes document women's work as educators, and include writings by Mary Carpenter, Dorothea Beale, Frances Mary Buss, and the Shirreff sisters Maria and Emily, gifted educators of girls at the elementary and secondary levels, and women whose educational practice embodied the arguments they made on behalf of girls' education. These volumes also chart the importance of the Governesses' Benevolent Institution, the Schools Inquiry Commission and the "Journal of Women's Education Union" in charting the increasing organization and professionalization of women teachers. Edited and with new introductions by Susan Hamilton and Janice Schroeder, "Nineteenth Century British Women's Education" is destined to be an invaluable reference resource to all future scholars of feminism and the history of education.

Gloucester Cathedral is an extraordinary building on which the great events in the history of England and the Christian religion have left their indelible marks. Kings and queens have worshipped here. One king was crowned here; another is buried here. Great musicians have made music and composed music here. Stonemasons and architects have built or changed or restored the building through the centuries. Abbots, bishops and deans have had new ideas and made great changes. Religious strife, civil war and great events have all left their mark. Many great men and women are remembered here in wood and stone and glass. For centuries ordinary people have also come - and still do come - as worshippers, pilgrims and visitors. This beautifully illustrated book tells this story of Gloucester Cathedral.

This three-volume set brings together a range of documents that allows researchers to explore the nineteenth-century vivisection controversy, its relation to the prominent animal welfare movement and the specific role of women within the movement.

The collection maps the battle over the meaning of animals in Victorian culture, from utility to companionship, showing the range of political, rhetorical and representational strategies that were deployed as physiology and anti-vivisection struggled to assert the 'truth' of animal bodies.

The volumes include press articles by key pro- and anti-vivisectionist activists in the established press, Victorian government materials, scientific papers and illustrations, and the pamphlets and journals of the anti-vivisectionist movements.

The articles in each volume are arranged chronologically to convey the shifts in argumentative emphases and dynamics.
