Red Ellen' Wilkinson

Her Ideas, Movements and World

Matt Perry

Published by Manchester University Press

  • An original and significant study of a major, but neglected, figure in twentieth-century British political and trans-national history
  • Unearths new evidence to provide a richer understanding of her remarkable achievements, her acquaintances (including Lenin, Trotsky and Gandhi) and her witnessing of history>'s great turning points
  • Wilkinson, born into a 'humble background' in Ardwick, Manchester, in 1891, became one of the first women MPs, an anti-imperialist, a redoubtable campaigner for women's rights and the unemployed and a committed internationalist with links across much of the globe
