'This is a book of lasting importance, a marker of shifting expectations in the male-female relationships of the West.' IndependentThe New Women and the Old Men is a group biography of the late-Victorian intellectuals and social reformers know collectively as the 'New Thinkers'. This extraordinary group of men and women consisted of Havelock Ellis, Olive Schreiner, Eleanor Marx, Edward Aveling, Sidney and Beatrice Webb, George Bernard Shaw, H. G. Wells and Margaret Sanger. Brilliantly combining social history, biography and feminist analysis, Ruth Brandon scrutinizes the marital and sexual relationships of this fascinating set.
