From back cover: "Born in 1847, at sixteen she was a passionate Christian longing to wage battle against sin and misery. At 28 she was notorious as a leader of miliant atheism. During her long life she refused to be bound by the conventions of her class and sex. She embraced a variety of beliefs - free-thought, socialism and theosophy - and she was a powerful advocate of women's rights, trade unionism and republicanism. In later life she fought for Indian independence, and her career reached its apex in 1917 with her presidency of the National Congress. ... when in 1889 she became a devoted supporter of Madama Blavatsky and theosophy, she plunged herself into a new vortex of strife."
