Arguably the most original book of the eighteenth century, <i>A Vindication of the Rights of Woman</i> is a pioneering feminist work. <p> Written during a time of great political turmoil, social anxiety, and against the backdrop of the French Revolution, Wollstonecraft&rsquo;s argument continues to challenge and inspire. This revised and expanded Third Edition is again based on the 1792 second-edition text and is accompanied by revised and expanded explanatory annotations.</p> <p> &ldquo;Backgrounds and Contexts&rdquo; is also significantly expanded and contains twenty-four works organized thematically into these groupings: &ldquo;Legacies of English Radicalism,&rdquo; &ldquo;Education,&rdquo; &ldquo;Wollstonecraft&rsquo;s Revolutionary Moment,&rdquo; and &ldquo;The Wollstonecraft Debate.&rdquo; Opinions on a variety of reforms that may be compared and contrasted with Wollstonecraft&rsquo;s include those by John Milton, John Locke, Mary Astell, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Hannah More, Richard Price, Edmund Burke, Maria Edgeworth, and William Godwin, among others.</p> <p> &ldquo;Criticism&rdquo; includes six seminal essays on <i>A Vindication of the Rights of Woman</i> by Elissa S. Guralnick, Mitzi Myers, Cora Kaplan, Mary Poovey, Claudia L. Johnson, and Barbara Taylor.</p> <p> A Chronology of Wollstonecraft&rsquo;s life and work and a Selected Bibliography are also included.</p>
