Reviews

"An important and provocative treatment of the politics of domesticity, and the domesticity of politics, or the reciprocal relationship between two allegedly estranged spheres that formed the very foundation for early feminism."

"The Domestic Revolution makes us question our understanding of feminism today by forcing us to complicate our notion of what feminism was at the time and in the place of its first explicit, verbal, and cultural achievement, eighteenth-century England. Bannet's uncompromising arguments, eloquently exposed, make for as vivid a reading and representation of the eighteenth century, and of women's self-representation, as any I have ever read. Anyone interested in the eighteenth century and in feminism will want to read this book."
