Award-winning history of the 19th-century roots of socialist feminism

In the 19th century, British Utopian Socialist Robert Owen attracted thousands of followers, many of them women, who attempted to put socialist theories into practice, and marrying them with feminist aspirations. For a quarter of a century, they struggled to create their own utopias with communal property, collective family life, free love and birth control. Eve and the New Jerusalem is a history of this movement, beginning with the socialist feminism of Mary Wollstonecraft and tracing Owenite Socialism through its rise, fall and legacy. Winner of the Isaac Deutscher Memorial Prize, Eve and the New Jerusalem is a fundamental addition to the contemporary understanding of both socialism and feminism.

Series Overview: The Feminist Classics series brings together seminal texts in the critical and left feminist traditions, including works of politics, history and critical thought. Addressing debates that continue into the present day, their ideas will inform contemporary discussion about feminism at the intersections of class and race.

Barbara Taylor is the author of The Last Asylum and Mary Wollstonecraft and the Feminist Imagination, and is a professor of humanities at the Queen Mary University of London.
