Destined to be Wives

The Sisters of Beatrice Webb

Barbara Caine

Barbara Caine , Senior Lecturer in the History Department, University of Sydney

'the best and most unbiased kind of women's history...stylishly written and imaginative study.' The Times Literary Supplement

" To negociate a pathway through this particular foreign country requires exceptional historical tact and sensitivity; both of which are displayed in these two fine books by Australian-based scholars." "...Barbara Caine's account is more satisfying because more focused." Sunday Times, Nov 1986.

`The biographical approach of Caine's study, tracing the lives of one group of sisters, is a novel and successful method of historical investigation within the field of women's history. Philippa Levine, Australian Feminist Studies
