The Hour and the Woman: Harriet Martineau's "Somewhat Remarkable" Life


A biography of the 19th-century British journalist and social reformer who is perhaps best known in this country today for her observations derived from her tour of the United States in the 1830s. Through her pen she was in her own day a leading social commentator and highly influential crusader against slavery and for the cause of women’s rights on both sides of the Atlantic. In this thoroughly researched work, her life is told in all its fascination and complexity by an associate professor of English at Western Kentucky University.
