Rebel Crossings relates the interweaving lives of four women and two men as they journey from the nineteenth to the twentieth century, from Britain to America, and from Old World conventions toward New World utopias. Radicalised by the rise of socialism, Helena Born, Miriam Daniell, Gertrude Dix, Helen Tufts, Robert Nicol and William Bailie cross the Atlantic dreaming of liberty and equality. All are part of a wider historical search for self-fulfillment and an alternative to capitalism.
Rebel Crossings offers fascinating perspectives on the historical interaction of feminism, socialism, and anarchism and on the emerging consciousness of a new sense of self, so vital for women seeking emancipation. These six lives bring fresh slants on political and cultural movements and upon influential individuals like Walt Whitman, Eleanor Marx, William Morris and Edward Carpenter. It is a work of significant originality by one of our leading feminist historians and speaks to the dilemmas of our own time.
