About this book

This innovative study analyzes Flora Tristan's correspondence with militant republicans, socialists and democrats active in the July Monarchy. It examines the role of the letter in fostering links at a time of a significant growth of literacy and search for citizenship by the disenfranchised. Combining a gendered analysis of socialist movements with a textual analysis of letters it illustrates the vitality of political tensions in Tristan's communications and the sophistication of political networks on the eve of the 1848 revolution.

Reviews

'The author aims to show how textual analysis of the correspondence illustrates the gendered nature of socialist movements, the vitality of political tensions in Tristan's communications and the sophistication of political networks on the eve of 1848'. - International Review of Social History
