Review of the hardback: 'Lucy Delap's elegant book reveals so much that is new about the multiple resonances of early twentieth century feminism, as a generation of young women tried with great boldness to fashion a new place for themselves in the promising modern era. Delap opens up entirely new areas of research in her probings of the feminist avant-garde's association with the political Right as well as the Left. Most importantly, she gives us a sense of the intensity and brilliance of ideas that surged back and forth across the Atlantic, as the newest of New Women in London and New York vied to make their city the 'storm center' of feminist politics and culture. This is a wonderful book, and a model of how to write history.' Christine Stansell, Princeton University Review of the hardback: '... [an] identity in opposition to the mainstream women's movement has recently been plucked out of obscurity and is presented wonderfully in Lucy Delap's The Feminist Avant-Garde. ... Meticulously researched and beautifully written ...' Contemporary British History
