The Pankhursts: The History of One Radical Family (Paperback)Martin Pugh (author)
The suffragettes outraged Victorian society but their personal lives were just as dramatic as their public actions. In this gripping and incisive account of the Pankhursts, Martin Pugh reveals the full story behind this unique family: Emmeline, the domineering mother; Christabel, the favourite daughter, who became an Adventist and admirer of Mussolini; Sylvia, the 'scarlet woman'; adn Adela, banished to Australia after a bitter rift.
The result is a narrative that reads like a novel, and a brilliant insight into the history of a family that changed the face of British society for ever.
