Eleanor Marx was an exceptional woman. Her work as a pioneering trade union leader, feminist and internationalist put her at the forefront of nineteenth-century campaigning for equality and social democracy. Personal secretary for years to her father, Karl Marx, she edited his key political writings and was his first biographer. She translated Flaubert's Madame Bovary and championed Ibsen in Britain.

Her tale is one of intrigue as well as inspiration; family secrets and a tragic, untimely death cast a mysterious shadow over her extraordinary life. In this gripping biography Rachel Holmes tells the story of the woman who did more than any other to transform British politics during turbulent times.
